Probing atomic chicken wire: Mounting graphene on boron nitride dramatically improves electronic properties

Monday, March 7, 2011 - 00:31 in Physics & Chemistry

Graphene -- a sheet of carbon atoms linked in a hexagonal, chicken wire structure -- could someday make electronic devices smaller, faster and more energy-efficient. Researchers have demonstrated that mounting graphene on boron nitride instead of silicon oxide dramatically improves its electronic properties.
