Top 7 Topics for Materials Science Research in 2020

1. Graphene

Let’s start with graphene, the research topic on our list with by far the highest number of publications in 2018 at over 20,000. Graphene is the material that received the most hype, especially since 2009. It may seem lately from the drop in media reports about the larger than life properties of the thinnest material in the world that graphene was an interesting material for research but has lost it’s novelty factor.

However, the stats above show that the number of publications for graphene is still increasing strongly from year to year, albeit it with a slightly slower rate of increase in comparison to the period from 2009 to 2014.



Why is this? As our understanding of the material matures, research is transitioning into finding ways to produce graphene at larger scales and also into new interesting applications.
