Graphene Rips Follow Rules
2012-01-06 04:36:00

[ Watch the Video ] Rice University simulations show carbon sheets tear along energetically favorable lines Research from Rice University and the University of California at Berkeley may give science and industry a new way to manipulate graphene, the wonder material expected to play a role in advanced electronic, mechanical and thermal applications. When graphene — a one-atom thick sheet of carbon — rips under stress, it does so in a unique way that puzzled...

Image 1 - Study Compares Techniques For Doping Graphene For Device And Interconnect Fabrication
2011-11-07 09:09:58

Nanotechnology researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have conducted the first direct comparison of two fundamental techniques that could be used for chemically doping sheets of two-dimensional graphene for the fabrication of devices and interconnects. Chemical doping is routinely used in conventional three-dimensional semiconductors to control the density of electron carriers that are essential to the operation of devices such as transistors. But graphene, a semi-metal...
