Graphene Ribbons Tuned to Act as Semiconductors

Graphene Ribbons Tuned to Act as Semiconductors

Using graphene ribbons of unimaginably small widths – just several atoms across – a group of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has found a novel way to “tune” the wonder material, causing the extremely efficient conductor of electricity to act as a semiconductor. [More]
