Extending Moore's Law with Epitaxial Graphene


Move over silicon. There's a new electronic material in town, and it goes fast. That material, the focus of the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics, is graphene — a fancy name for extremely thin layers of ordinary carbon atoms arranged in a "chicken-wire" lattice. These layers, sometimes, just a single atom thick, conduct electricity with virtually no resistance, very little heat generation — and less power consumption than silicon.

With silicon device fabrication approaching its physical limits, many researchers believe graphene can provide a new platform material that would allow the semiconductor industry to continue the march ...
