Submission + - New super-elastic form of graphene promises 'flexi-electronics' (nature.com)

ananyo writes: "It can support 50,000 times its own weight, springs back into shape after being compressed by up to 80% and has a density much lower than most comparable metal-based materials. A new superelastic, three-dimensional form of graphene can even conduct electricity, paving the way for flexible electronics.
The researchers adapted an industrial technique called freeze casting to nano-sized flakes of carbon up to 1-centimetre high graphene blocks. The researchers attribute the new graphene's properties to its structure: the individual graphene sheets are neatly aligned, forming an ordered network of hexagonal pores (abstract)."
