Functional Nanoribbons Carved Using Super-heated, Nano-sized Particles Of Iron

Friday, August 1, 2008 - 21:28 in Physics & Chemistry

Physicists at the University of Pennsylvania have demonstrated a new method by which graphene films can be etched along flawless, crystallographic axes using hot nanoparticles, a technique that results in precise, macroscopic length ribbons of graphene. The advance could enable atomically precise and simple construction of integrated circuits from single graphene sheets with a wide range of technological applications.
