  • Graphene is Strong, But Is It Tough?External link

    02.08.16 Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed the first known statistical theory for the toughness of polycrystalline graphene, which is made with chemical vapor deposition, and found that it is indeed strong (albeit not quite as strong as pristine monocrystalline graphene), but more importantly, its toughness—or resistance to fracture—is quite low.
