A new twist for graphene: Trying to solve the bandgap problem

Although it’s like a sheet of paper (if paper could be only one atom thick), but “Do not bend, fold, mutilate or spindle” does not apply to sheets of graphene. Scientists all over the world are doing all of the above and a lot more to graphene in search of its many surprising properties. From […]

Graphene transistor: Two layers may be better than one

One of the characteristics of clever science is to look at a new material from every which way. So it is with graphene. Graphene is a sheet of carbon atoms, in a layer one atom thick, arranged in the pattern of a honeycomb. It sounds simple, and is anything but. Its super-thinness in this precise […]
