Windows 7: Flash memory chip built out of single-atom-thick components

Flash memory chip built out of single-atom-thick components

Graphene, a single-atom thick sheet of carbon, has become the focus of a lot of research (and a Nobel Prize) because it has an interesting electronic property: electrons move through the material as if they have no mass. But it's only one of a number of single-atom thick materials that have been discovered, and some of the others have very different properties, acting as semiconductors or insulators.

Thank you BrightBlessings for that information. It does sound like a great discovery. I can see companies like Intel or I.B.M. buying the technology.

Unfortunately it won't be in mass production for about another ~20 years (give or take).

A side note, in my freshman chemistry class at university, we had a discussion about graphene in particular, what is awesome about the material is that it conducts heat very efficiently, meaning one day when things like CPUs are made out of graphene ,there will hopefully be less power draw and less heat generation, also if i remember correctly it can also act as a superconductor for electrons. Meaning it won't lose electrons, so a huge power saving for things such as mobile devices in the future.

Although there is a huge potential in the tech industry most of the R&D and actual uses will probably be in the space industry because graphene absorbs some radiation (2-3%) which is a whole lot better than current single layer structures.

BTW: Here is a picture of what a graphene lattice looks like:

Hiyya BB hows it going up country??

Came across this a while ago while researching carbon as a wound dressing component and then wetn on to see it mentioned semi conductor research Graphene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia goos read and I like the illustrations too

There were some good articles in a British site where they are doing a lot of the research it was the University of Manchester where they first worked on the theory but I cannot get tie site to come up as my ISP is playing up at the moment. But if you Google Graphene there are plenty of hits and one I notice for - sorry about that had top reboot freezing problem and one in Switzerland that is working on memory

No mate cannot get that Manchester site up it is the one to look at.

I just could not get Manchester Uni to come up in any Google whether it is from my end or some server I don't know but thanks it is just about the same info.

I also saw a fair while ago to program on the use of organic molecules being used for transistors but I suppose at this atomic level even that would be old hat by now eh?.

Will be over in Wiltshire next month to see my family and was just wondering what you reckon the weather might be then?
