In 2012, Cornell University and University of Ulm researchers simultaneously reported they had created the thinnest-ever sheet of glass. At just two atoms thick, the glass is far thinner than even a human cell. The researchers created it by layering silicon and oxygen atoms on top of graphene, which is a super strong material made of carbon. They are now being recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, which will publish the accomplishment in its 2014 book.

  1. What are the applications of this glass? How strong is it?

  2. They can use the thinnest glass in phones. They can surely use the glass in many toher gadgets.
