This short animation takes a look at how graphene was isolated and answers the widely asked question - What is graphene?

Narrated by Dr Sarah Haigh a lecturer in Materials Characterisation. Her research focuses on the structure and properties of nanomaterials using high resolution transmission electron microscope (TEM) imaging and spectroscopic analysis.
