      Even though I work on materials called perovskites (which can be used in solar cells), my favourite material is probably graphene! It’s made of very very thin sheets of carbon and has lots of very useful properties including being very strong and good at conducting electricity. It was also discovered by peeling sticky tape off carbon.
