Graphene photodetectors integrated into CMOS silicon chips, could herald new optoelectronic era

Graphene photodetectors integrated into CMOS silicon chips, could herald new optoelectronic era

Most modern information travels long distances in the form of infrared laser light, but when that data reaches its destination it requires devices called photodetectors to translate the optical language of data transfer into the electronic language of computation. This ...

Scientists use DNA to shape graphene into the transistor of the future

Scientists use DNA to shape graphene into the transistor of the future

Increasingly, quantum computers are predicted to be the next great leap in computational power — but in reality they are more likely to be the next next great leap. Right now we have to tailor experimental quantum chips to their ...

Using lithographic lasers to harvest super-pure graphene suitable for stacking

Using lithographic lasers to harvest super-pure graphene suitable for stacking

Graphene is a material with seemingly unlimited potential. This remarkable single-layer lattice of carbon atoms has been put forward as the solution to a huge number of engineering problems from semiconductors to solar cells. Even with all that promise, a ...

Carbyne: A new form of carbon that’s stronger than graphene

Carbyne: A new form of carbon that’s stronger than graphene

A new form of carbon, dubbed carbyne, is stronger and stiffer than any known material. In fact, carbyne is about two times stronger than graphene and carbon nanotubes, which until now were the strongest materials by some margin. Carbyne has ...
