 The hottest thing in the world of science and technology may be something that you’ve never even heard of.

It’s a substance called graphene.  Scientists came up with the idea of graphene back in the 1940s, but it wasn’t ‘till 2004 that they figured out how to make it. Last year, a pair of scientists’ work with graphene won a Nobel Prize… and now, scientists at the University of Maryland have found a way to make it commercially useful.

For a closer look at what they’ve done – and an explanation of what graphene actually is,  Dr. Michael S. Fuhrer of the UMD Center for Nanophysics and Advanced Materials joins us.
