Publisher's Note: We have been writing about graphene's potential for many years now. As SNS members know, I am on the Advisory Board of the Graphene Stakeholders Association and, more recently, of the first Graphene Center of Excellence. So I, and SNS, have put our time and money where our publications have been, working to understand and accelerate the commercialization and market uptake of this most amazing material.


Recently, I had a chance to meet with Ray Gibbs, CEO of Haydale Plc, and talk with him at length about how this commercial transition will occur. He may be the best-informed person in the world on this subject, since it is his company's chosen charter, and the subject itself may be among the most important in the world. All in all, it's easy to understand why we leaped at the chance to have Ray explain his views on how and when this will happen.


If members think that graphene will not impact their corner of technology, whatever it may be - from chips to planes, screens to 3D printing, future cars to wearables, fuel cells to desalinization - graphene will be there. And so will the SNS members who saw it coming, early. - mra.
