Graphene: The Miracle Material That’s as Light as Foil, But Can Stop a Bullet 

Newsweek Magazine, 12.25.17

Despite graphene being remarkably thin, it’s strong enough to protect from a bullet, according to a statement describing the new research. Scientists found that by arranging two layers of graphene together, it becomes durable enough to handle impact at room temperature. They’ve named the new material “diamene.” "This is the thinnest film with the stiffness and hardness of diamond ever created,” study author Elissa Riedo, a physics professor at The City University of New York (CUNY), said in a statement.
