    Sorry I have no more spaces for students, Andrew is a real tough cookie.

    NBC. Three orders of magnitude faster electrons.

    Ultrafast electronic response of graphene to a strong and localized electric field.

    Great! Soon we'll have even smaller cellphones!

    Doing multi-THz computing while keeping cool would be useful. Might be all it takes to finally make it to human brain level

    Reason for Andrew to be cheerful.

    Towards roll to roll graphene production.

    Fine, I'll take a 1500m roll of AWG 6.

    Called "wire nuts" here, south of the north border.

    Akin, I think, to the Arborite-Formica rift.

    I knew that. I was just being provocative.

    I wondered momentarily about the EU term, but realised quickly that there is none because the practice here involves incredibly fiddly little gagets that require a jeweller's screwdriver to join two 12 gauge wires. I use contraband Marrettes.

    I detest the bloody things (wire nuts). While they're a convenient way to join two conductors, I've seen my share of improperly-applied ones. Thank heavens, code has been revised in most US states to make the goo-filled ones for joining copper=to-aluminum illegal. It was a lousy idea to start with.

    I never heard of that. Al wire was a bad idea all by itself.

    Porous, 3-D forms of graphene 10 times as strong as steel but much lighter.

    Sometimes called "purple twisters":



    If you have to make an Al-Cu join, these (AlumiCons) are somewhat better:



    Generally recognized to be the best, the "Copalum" connector. Requires certification for use, as well as a very pricey leased tool:

    Your "alumicon" is more or less the standard for all wire around here (Caribbean Netherlands). It is horrible compared to Marettes.
