In the last few years, a new form of graphene has garnered increasing interest. Dubbed “artificial graphene,” this latest addition to the 2D landscape is not formed from a single atomic layer of graphite. Instead it is synthesized from other materials to have the same … [Read more...] about Adding a Bit of Artificiality Makes Graphene Real for Electronics
Today’s advanced chips use transistors whose most prominent feature is a vertical fin of silicon through which current flows when the device is switched on. But that design’s days may be numbered. IBM, for one, plans on moving to a design called … [Read more...] about Is Qualcomm’s NanoRing the Transistor of the (Near) Future?
