Researchers from the Australian University (ANU) have developed a thin, bendable, organic semiconductor material that could potentially be used in mobile phones and other electronic devices.Lead researchers Ankur Sharma and Larry Lu explained how the semiconductor would be used to help create ultra-fast electronic chips. “Conventional devices run on electricity — but this material allows us to use light or photons, which travels much faster,” Sharma said. ”The interesting properties we have observed in this material make it a contender for super-fast electronic processors and chips. ”We now have the perfect building block, to achieve flexible next generation electronics.” The material, according to Lu, is a hundred one carbon atom thick, which is equivalent to being “a hundred times thinner than a human hair”, and has the ability to be bent into any shape. “The capabilities we observed in this material that can help us achieve ultra-fast electronic devices,” Lu said.

However, unlike this newest material, which uses organic material, the one developed two years ago compromised of both organic and inorganic elements…. Read full this story
