Graphene-powered web could download 3-D movies in seconds, give MPAA nightmares
Graphene, is there anything it can’t do? Researchers are already trying to put it in processors, fuel cells, and batteries — now your internet connection might get ten-times faster thanks to  the silicon successor.
Researchers at UC Berkeley have created tiny,  one-atom-thick modulators that could switch the data-carrying light on  and off in a fiber-optic connection much faster than current technology.
