Setting Standards for New Materials

Silicon was first discovered in 1787, but it wasn't until the 1950s that it became widely used in industry. In contrast, the Graphene Flagship has been working to bring graphene to the market in just ten years. Determining accepted technical standards for graphene will play a large part in meeting that deadline.
