Carbyne could be stronger that Graphene (pictured above). (cc) AlexanderAlUS/ CORE Materials A new research paper published on Arxiv describes in detail the properties of Carbyne, a supermaterial that is stronger than graphene and diamond, and can be synthesized and stabilized at room temperature. Carbyne is stiffer than anything that scientists have seen before, and could potentially have a wide variety of applications in nanomechanical systems and electromechanical devices.
