USA Graphite Inc. (OTC:USGT) released a statement expressing its excitement about Samsung Electronics’ use of graphene, a material that makes use of graphite, in its various commercial applications.
As quoted in the press release:
“Demonstrations of ‘bendable’ screens have been a staple of technology shows ever since there were screens small enough for us to carry.
Samsung has given the strongest sign yet that the hi-tech devices might become reality.
The company demonstrated ‘bendable’ AMOLED screens 4.5 inches across and just 0.3mm thick.
Reports this week hint that phones using the technology — which can be ‘rolled up’ and survive hammer blows — will appear in the second quarter of next year.
The technology relies on atom-thick layers of ‘graphene’ — sheets of carbon atoms — sandwiched together, protecting a layer of liquid crystal ‘screen’. “
