Printing Graphene? Answered

Has anyone tried this? I have a lightscribe. Looking at the video it seems that all I need is some graphite oxide. I tried embeding the video but I don't think it is going to work. Here is a link to the video.

has anyone tried vapour deposition of graphene here?

idk, get graphite and arc it in a vacuum? Just an idea

How would one try it?

I found this company that sells graphene. You have to be quoted a price so that means it is expensive.

That is what I found also. I will keep searching.

graphene by definition is one atom thick of graphite, and i suppose you could try it, and if you got it to work you would win a noble prize, because the people who conclusively proved graphene to be true won a noble prize

Yeah, that is probably above my pay grade. I was just wondering how hard it would be to do it like they did in the video.

Graphite oxide is all around you; in fact, you produce it yourself with every breath you take. It is one of the two primary causes of anthropomorphic climate change.

Graphene is monatomic layers peeled from bulk graphite. The simplest way to make it is to start with a block of graphite, apply scotch tape, and peel. You'll probably need access to a decent quality electron microscope, or an X-ray diffraction system, in order to verify that you've got graphene layers and not just thin sheets of graphite.
