New material that is 300 times stronger than iron, according to Nokia’s researchers can revolutionize the mobile and computer industry.
Nokia has together with Graphene Flag Consortium won 1 billion euros (about 7.5 billion dollars) to develop a new super material.
The new material has a thickness of only 1 atom and is the hardest known material ever tested-300 times stronger than steel.
The Consortium consists of 74 academic as well as industrial partners.
