Graphene has been called one of the most promising materials of the 21st Century, for both mechanical and electronic applications. The material is highly electrically and thermally conductive, and holds a great deal of promise for displays, semiconductors, and even for medical devices. In support of the advancement of the material and associated technologies, the Graphene Stakeholders Association (GSA) was recently created to foster graphene education and information exchange in an open environment. The GSA seeks to develop common and accepted nomenclature, definitions, standard metrology and testing methods, along with health, safety, and environmental standards by working collaboratively with international, national and industry-based organizations.
