Graphene Breakthrough Could Lead To Faster, More Efficient Electronics

8. 11. 15 by Hashem AL-ghaili
  • Engineers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered a way to grow graphene nanoribbons with desirable semiconducting properties directly on a conventional germanium semiconductor wafer.

  • This breakthrough could allow manufacturers to easily use graphene nanoribbons in hybrid integrated circuits, which promise to significantly boost the performance of next-generation electronic devices.

  • This technology could also have specific uses in industrial and military applications, such as sensors that detect specific chemical and biological species and photonic devices that manipulate light.
