It may be recalled that Dr B G Sidharth had worked out many of the mysteries of Graphene as early as 1995 with a publication in the prestigious Journal of Statistical Physics in 1997. Graphene itself was discovered ten years later in 2005 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov both in Manchester and both of whom won the Nobel Prize for this experimental discovery.

Since then many other interesting properties of Graphene have emerged. A very interesting take on Graphene was given by BG Sidharth a few years ago in his inunciation of Graphene as a testbed for high energy physics experiments. Here the idea was that Graphene would be the analogue of a wind tunnel with suitable analogues of Reynold’s numbers for high energy physics results.

The interesting consideration was that a very large sheet of Graphene would resemble the Minkowski space of relativity.

On a slightly different note, Sidharth points out that using the above results we could consider what may be called Crinkled (including cylindrical and so on) Graphene. Here there would be abrupt changes in the direction of motion of the electrons which would then lead to the analogue of Brem Stralung Radiation which occurs for example in synchrotrons when fast-moving electrons change their direction of motion.

In the case of Crinkled Graphene, there would thus be several other radiations all be it weak in different directions.
