A Polish prototype machine to create graphene has been hailed as a significant breakthrough, potentially allowing mass production of the material at a low cost.

Researchers from the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology collaborated with engineers from the firm Seco-Wawreick to create a machine which can produce a sheet of graphene with a surface area of 50x50 cm within four hours.

According to Dr. Włodzimierz Strupiński from the Institute this is now one of the most efficient graphene producing machines in the world, and only Japan and Korea have any comparable technology.
