New research combats the "mistaken consensus" that bonded pieces of graphene are weaker than a solid sheet of the material, according to mechanical engineering professor James Hone. Bonded graphene patches can be at least 90% as strong as graphene itself, he said. "This strength will be invaluable as scientists continue to develop new flexible electronics and ultrastrong composite materials."
