Graphene 15

Since the first report of the isolation of atomically thin carbon films in 2004, the field of graphene and other 2D materials has expanded dramatically. Fast-forward 15 years, graphene that was once established as the world's thinnest, strongest and most conductive material, remains the subject of rigorous scientific scrutiny and significant industrial interest. More than a decade of fundamental research combined with the mature graphene manufacturing methodology have created a strong basis for the future commercialization of graphene. In this Focus issue we revisit the most important advances in the field over the last 15 years and ponder upon the present status and the future of graphene as a marketable technology.
