The discovery of Graphene

Since 1859, many scientists were looking for graphite and finally in 1916 the structure of graphite was clarified. While they were examining graphite, they found some unexpected behavior in extremely thin layers of graphite and then they wanted to make it thinner and thinner down to one atomic layer to study physical and electrical behavior these thin layers. The story and research continued, but no one could make one atomic layer of Graphene, even though very complicated experiments were carried out – until 2004.
