No More Cracked Smartphone Screens
What if I told you a new material could make cracked screens a problem of the past? A team of scientists combined semiconducting molecules (known as C60) with graphene and another material called hBN. This combo works well because the hBN provides stability, electronic compatibility and isolation charge to graphene, while C60 can transform sunlight into electricity. The material has improved chemical stability, lightness and flexibility, which could potentially be used as screens in smart devices and would be less likely to break.
