Amazing..!! Isn't it ?

This miracle material is nothing but, Graphene...!!!

Graphene is a material made up of just a single-atom layer of carbon, giving it many interesting properties. One such property is that it conducts electricity extremely well, meaning it can replace silicon or metals in electronics, conferring huge improvements to speed and efficiency.

In this case, the team at Georgia Tech, led by Ian Akyildiz, is proposing an antenna made of the stuff. A graphene antenna could work at terahertz frequencies, far beyond the megahertz and gigahertz rates found in even the most advanced wireless devices today.

The end result could, under the right circumstances, provide data rates of up to 100 terabits per second, Akyildiz told MIT's Tech Review. That's enough to transfer the contents of any ordinary hard drive in just a fraction of a second — the blink of an eye.

More conservative estimates, which take into account greater distances between the antennas and other factors, still suggest terabit speeds would be achieved, requiring just a few seconds to transfer the contents of a 1 TB hard drive.
