2010 Nobel Prize Winners in Physics Announced

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene"

Graphene is a one-atom-thick planar sheet of carbon atoms that are densely packed in a honeycomb crystal lattice. The term Graphene was coined as a combination of "graphite" and the suffix "ene" (containing a double carbon bond).

The possible practical applications (though most of them sill not realized) for graphene include microelectronics, composite materials, solar cells, mobile phones, and more.

Hi ,
I am Shahzad from
I am an engineering student and I used to blog about engg. mini projects.

I found that your blog has listed a lot of projects; which
project will you select as the best project. I am thinking to write a new link post on "Best engg.projects ever" in my blog.So that I can give link to your blog by mentioning your suggestion
Waiting for your reply,
