When Immigration Works
Geim Goes to England - and Changes the World
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report -- September 28   
In 2003, one ingenious physicist took a block of graphite, some Scotch tape...
    Andre Geim was born in Sochi, Russia in 1958. In 1987, at the age of 29, he completed his PhD at the Institute of Solid State Physics in Chernogolovka, Russia. In 2001 he became a professor of physics at the University of Manchester in England.
    As reported in APS Physics "Scientists often find ingenious ways to attain their research objectives, even if that objective is a truly two-dimensional material that many physicists felt could not be grown. In 2003, one ingenious physicist took a block of graphite, some Scotch tape and a lot of patience and persistence and produced a magnificent new wonder material that is a million times thinner than paper, stronger than diamond, more conductive than copper. It is called graphene, and it took the physics community by storm when the first paper appeared the following year."
    A Google search of "graphene" reveals an incredible list of recent applications, some days old, including ultracapacitors that could revolutionize computers and cars alike and solar collectors that could help ease the energy crisis. I cannot recall ever seeing a technical development that had such broad and immediate major applications. It seems too good to be true, but graphine could revolutionize our entire economy!
    We are just beginning understand the impact of graphene - and England's decision to accept Andre Geim as an immigrant. Now that's the kind of immigration America needs.
