Physicists Discover How To Change The Crystal Structure Of Graphene
2014-05-01 03:38:14

Daniel Stolte, University of Arizona A University of Arizona-led team of physicists has discovered how to change the crystal structure of graphene, more commonly known as pencil lead, with an electric field, an important step toward the possible use of graphene in microprocessors that would be smaller and faster than current, silicon-based technology. Graphene consists of extremely thin sheets of graphite: when writing with a pencil, graphene sheets slough off the pencil's graphite...

National Science Foundation Fundamental research in phonon scattering helps researchers design graphene materials for applications Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and...

A pencil, containing a solid pigment core within a protective casing, is a common writing implement or art medium. Having a case keeps the pigment from breaking as well as from marking the user's hand. Pencils differ from pens because they leave marks by physical abrasion rather than staining the paper. The pigment leaves behind a trail of material that adheres to the sheet of paper or other writing surface. Cores are usually made of graphite mixed with clay to bind it. Graphite is durable...

Graphite (named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789, from the Greek γραφειν: "to draw/write", for its use in pencils) is one of the allotropes of carbon. Unlike diamond, graphite is a conductor, and can be used, for instance, as the material in the electrodes of an electrical arc lamp. Occurrence Associated minerals include: quartz, calcite, micas, iron meteorites and tourmalines. Notable occurrences include New York and Texas in the USA, Russia, Mexico, Greenland,...
