Will III-V Materials Beat Carbon-based Nanotubes and Graphene?

NO RATINGS
IBM has been working long and hard to define the next generation of semiconductors--such as carbon based nanotube- and graphene-transistors. Nanowires made from III-V materials like GaAs, InGaAs and InAs however, may turn out to be easier to integrate into the CMOS design flow than carbon-based materials. What do you think?
