Graphene vs CNTs?

One research at the event said graphene, though it lacks a bandgap, is closer to commercial reality than CNT? I'd love to hear more views on this.

Rick, I don't know about the graphene side of things, but as an fyi, the carbon nanotubes leverage an SOI wafer -- I wrote about this in ASN a couple years ago. IBM "fabricated trenches made of hafnium oxide onto SOI wafers, which allows the self-assembly by the carbon nanotubes into neat rows rather than a spaghetti-like tangle." (see http://bit.ly/XPEFXc)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
