Knighthoods for Nobel-winning graphene pioneers

[ via BBC News Science & Environment  ] 31 Dec 2011

Two Nobel laureates involved in the creation of graphene, a sheet of carbon just one atom thick, have received knighthoods in the New Year Honours.
Profs Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, from the University of Manchester, won the physics Nobel Prize in 2010 for their pioneering research.
Profs Geim and Novoselov, both originally from Russia, first worked together in the Netherlands before moving to the UK. They were based at the University of Manchester when they published their seminal research paper on graphene in October 2004.
