Ef­fi­cient ma­te­rial

Down to Earth - - SCIENCE -

P H Y S I C I S T S H AV E cre­ated an ar­ti­fi­cial ma­te­rial sim­i­lar to graphene. It con­ducts heat and elec­tric­ity ef­fi­ciently and is nearly trans­par­ent. Tran­sis­tors made from this ma­te­rial are faster and more heat tol­er­ant than ex­ist­ing sil­i­con ones. This makes it more suit­able for mak­ing ef­fi­cient com­put­ers and next-gen­er­a­tion flex­i­ble elec­tron­ics. The dis­cov­ery pro­vides us the abil­ity to cre­ate struc­tures for many other el­e­ments. Phys­i­cal Re­view Let­ters, Fe­bru­ary 1
