Global Technology – July 2017

Over the past sixty years, traditional silicon-based transistors revolutionized electronics with their ability to switch current on and off.  By controlling the flow of current, transistors allowed the creation of smaller radios, televisions and computers.

As reported this month in Nature Communications, a team of researchers has designed a new generation of transistor based not on silicon but on a ribbon of graphene, the two-dimensional carbon material with the thickness of a single atom.

Their findings have big implic.....
