Graphene could serve as the conductor, insulator, semiconductor and now the magnetic material in future electronics. Silicon keeps on going by innovating, but the fact that carbon can substitute for metals as interconnects gives it a little cited advantage. Namely, that if all the copper conductors in a mobile device were made from graphene, then the device would be less than half the weight it is today. If everything in future handheld electronics was crafted from carbon films, they could become almost as light as styrofoam.

I feel Heat conduction in the subject should be considered.

Great story! Graphene is emerging as the universal alternative for the conductor, insulator, semiconductor and now magnetic material. Apart from being lighter, electronic gadgets using graphics are going to be faster (because of high electron mobility), more energy-efficient and smaller.

So- how do you get vacancies into the lattice? Seems like that part of the process might be difficult. Would be nice to have a simple description...

They induced correlated defects in pyrolytic graphite with proton irradiation.

I am in agreement with Dr DSP. A description is really needed for an understanding of the process.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
