Graphene Could Buttress Next-Gen Computer Chip Wiring

Current can literally blow copper interconnects away, but graphene could keep them intact Image: Stanford University Images: Stanford University Death By Electromigration: Copper interconnects are now so narrow that current can cause a break by knocking atoms out of place. Most of the hand-wringing over the fate of Moore’s Law focuses on the ever-shrinking silicon(…)

Most sensitive uncooled graphene-based thermal detector yet fabricated Image: Emberion An international team of researchers under the umbrella of the EU-funded Graphene Flagship have taken a significant step in thermal infrared (IR) photodetctors with the development of the most sensitive uncooled graphene-based thermal detector yet fabricated.  These new photodetectors, known as bolometers, are so sensitive that(…)
