Bright Side of News takes a look at the latest developments in graphene transistors, you can read it over here.
A form of graphene may prove to be an alternative or replacement for silicon as the building block of transistors. Graphene research has been heating up since it was discovered in 2004. Graphene has been described as a hexagonal array of carbon atoms, each connected to three neighbors.
In its reduced form, graphene oxide [rGO] looks promising for producing large-scale flexible conductors and for creating devices that require an electronic gap. Reduced graphene oxide, can be used to produce nanocircuits and nanowires with controllable conductivity. A team drawn from across the globe - Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia; Chung Ang University, Seoul Korea; University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois; Institute Neel, Grenoble, France; and the US Naval Research Laboratory - contributed to the project.
