    Large-scale few-layer graphene (FLG) films were prepared by an industrial single-roller melt spinning technique based on molten alloy quenched carbon self-segregation using nickel and carbon as precursors. A formation mechanism of FLG based on rapid diffusion and non-equilibrium segregation of carbon is discussed. This ultra-fast thin film preparation technique can be extended and used to produce ultrathin sheets of two-dimensional materials other than graphene.
