New Type Of Electronic Device Suggested By Ballistic Transport In Graphene
2014-02-06 11:59:13

Georgia Institute of Technology Using electrons more like photons could provide the foundation for a new type of electronic device that would capitalize on the ability of graphene to carry electrons with almost no resistance even at room temperature – a property known as ballistic transport. Research reported this week shows that electrical resistance in nanoribbons of epitaxial graphene changes in discrete steps following quantum mechanical principles. The research shows that the...

Rice University, Russian researchers lay out rules for ultrathin ‘diamane’ Perfect sheets of diamond a few atoms thick appear to be possible even without the big squeeze that makes natural gems. Scientists have speculated about it and a few labs have even seen signs of what they call diamane, an extremely thin film of diamond that has all of diamond’s superior semiconducting and thermal properties. Now researchers at Rice University and in Russia have calculated a “phase...

New Boron Nanomaterial Could Be A Very Real Possibility
2014-01-28 10:55:00

Brown University Graphene, a sheet of carbon one atom thick, may soon have a new nanomaterial partner. In the lab and on supercomputers, chemical engineers have determined that a unique arrangement of 36 boron atoms in a flat disc with a hexagonal hole in the middle may be the preferred building blocks for “borophene.” Findings are reported in Nature Communications. Researchers from Brown University have shown experimentally that a boron-based competitor to graphene is a very real...

Researchers Find New Form Of Quantum Matter
2014-01-17 14:24:26

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory The discovery of what is essentially a 3D version of graphene – the 2D sheets of carbon through which electrons race at many times the speed at which they move through silicon – promises exciting new things to come for the high-tech industry, including much faster transistors and far more compact hard drives. A collaboration of researchers at the U.S Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has discovered...
