Atom-thick material runs rings around silicon

Source: NewSciencetistTech

 

Graphene, a material made from flat sheets of carbon in a honeycomb arrangement is a leading contender. A team at the University of Manchester, UK, have now used it to make some of the smallest transistors ever. Devices only 1 nm across that contain just a few carbons rings.

Previous graphene transistors were significantly bigger – ribbons 10 nm across and many times longer.
