Graphene for interconnects

Graphene for interconnects Graphene, boasting large carrier mobility and thermal conductivity, coupled with small material volume, emerges as a viable alternative to copper interconnects in electronic circuits. Copper was an optimal material for interconnects in integrated circuits (ICs) throughout most of 20th century IC history, which was only natural following the great success of copper Continue Reading...

Haydale’s Plasma Functionalization of Graphene

In this interview, Ray Gibbs, CEO of Haydale, talks to AZoNano about Haydale’s unique plasma technology, the benefits of graphene functionalisation, and how the future looks for graphene-based products. WS: To start with, can you give us a brief overview of Haydale’s technology? RG: Haydale is positioned as a materials processing company – we can take other Continue Reading...

Graphene-based OLED outperforms one based on ITO

Graphene has been hailed as a potential replacement for indium tin oxide (ITO) in the growing market for transparent conductors, in particular because it might enable the highly sought after flexible portable devices. Technological immaturity has so far hindered the widespread use of graphene as a transparent electrode, however researchers from Philips Research, the University Continue Reading...

NPL – Graphene Think Piece

Graphene Think Piece The Graphene Special Interest Group (GrapheneSIG) has published a Graphene Think Piece. The document was initiated by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to “inform a view on where and how the UK might best gain economic value from graphene related activities.” The GrapheneSIG is run by the Knowledge Transfer Network and aims to provide: Continue Reading...
