New technique is a big nano-step forward in fabricating the next generation of transistors

Using hydrocarbon seeds, materials engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a new method for making graphene nanoribbons. In the future, the technique may allow the industrial-scale fabrication of the ribbons, enabling them to be used as next-generation transistors on computer chips and other “post-silicon” devices.

Led by Michael Arnold, a professor of materials science and engineering at UW-Madison, and PhD graduate Austin Way, the research appears in the June 2022 issue of the journal Nature Communications.
