Cellphone radiation blocker!

Scientists have developed a new material that can effectively block
electromagnetic waves emitting from mobile phones, televisions, microwave ovens and other appliances. Researchers led by Gu Jongmin from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Seoul and Drexel University in the US manufactured the material made out of MXene. MXene is a class of two-dimensional inorganic compounds made of Titanium and carbon and a single layer is about one nanometre. Researchers found that MXene can block the electromagnetic waves. One of its strengths is it is easy to process and the cost is relatively cheap.
