Not only is graphene the strongest material known to man, but it is has lots of potential for use in electrical devices -- it's so capable that it could eventually replace silicon transistors.

Graphene, aside from being hot, is also the strongest material known to man. But researchers world-wide have been looking for ways to take advantage of its structural and electrical properties. Graphene has a lot of potential for use in electronic devices, and it can be capable of replacing silicon transistors.

It has the ability to serve as a superconductor and has multitude of properties ideal for transistors. Aside from the fact that it can tap out silicon, the graphene transistors is also capable of ambipolarity.
