Global Technology – October 2011

Graphene is the thinnest material in the world, made up of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. Known as a “wonder material,” it possesses a large number of unique properties and is currently considered in many new technologies. Now, according to new research published in the journal Nature Communications, a collaboration between the Universities of Manchester and Cambridge has discovered a crucial recipe for improving characteristics of graphene devices for use as photodetectors in future high-speed optical communications. By combining graphene with meta.....
