    The Noble committee announced on Tuesday that Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov of the University of Manchester in England have won the award for their experiments with graphene.

    Graphene is a flat sheet of carbon just one-atom thick. It is almost completely transparent, but also extremely strong and a good conductor of electricity.
