Graphene Light – atomic level strength of light emission

The atom-thick graphene layer in the image is in the hard-to-believe one billionth of a meter range. The exceptional conductivity and strength of light emitted at the atomic level of graphene has played a significant role in light amplification in LEDs and fiber optics. Light as a medium in the visual arts has undergone extraordinary developments in recent years. Artists have responded by expressing ideas in innovative and powerful displays of emitted light.
