i agree, but this article sounds more like any research paper. The only comment about the move to manufacturing is,"IBM's paper is set to move that on towards a maufacturable technology based on CMOS-compatible fabrication on 200-mm diameter wafers."

Could it be in the hope that engineers will get so excited about the upcoming program they will sign up to attend?

re: "...define gate structures first on silicon wafers..." All that SiO2 (insulator) in the illustrations -- wonder if they're doing this work starting on SOI wafers -- does anyone know? (I know they do currently have a very successful RF/CMOS foundry offering that does start on SOI wafers -- see http://www.advancedsubstratenews.com/2007/10/rf-all-in-one/ ....)

The frequency doubler with rf passives integrated is a good progress. It seems the graphene FET can work up to 100 GHz.Soon we can expect 10 GHz CPU's.

It is exciting to see graphene moving from theory to reality. Since carbon is available in unlimited quantities, will graphene circuits have environmental benefits also in terms of reduced usage of rare and toxic materials in electronics fabrication?
