Researchers achieve ‘printing’ of graphene nanostructures, nanocircuits

By / June 16, 2010

A group of researchers representing several institutions report in Science they have gained new abilities to “print” graphene oxide-based nano-scale replacements for IC wiring and some semiconductor devices using a method that employs an atomic force microscope to act as a printer head do the detailed work of tuning the conductivity of the material in…
