Researchers at Princeton University have discovered a potentially viable way to use carbon as a replacement substrate material for silicon. The team has figured out how to build transistors on tiny patches of the substrate, called graphene, just a few atomic layers thick. The research indicates that switching speeds could be 10x faster than silicon.
