I don't get it. Anyone can make a transistor in any material but in the end is it better.

So it only works one direction, a gated Schottky diode?

10 to the power 5 achievement is great without reducing the mobility of electrons. If successful soon we can see breaking the Moor's law and see the chips are made 5 nm technology.

The carbon crystalline matrix has been the most frustrating thing to harness, when the breakthrough comes it will hit the electronic industry like carbon fibre hit mechanical design. How to read the effects of that disruptive technology? Hard to guess which of the myriad scientists will pull it out of the bag; easier maybe to spot who stands to lose, I guess.

I do not understand the need to emulate a semiconductor using Graphene. Why not exploit the superior conducting properties of it in some different applications?

How many more such application of graphene can we expect?...seems endless. Eager to see some commercial application made available.

Who knows if the industry has a viable means to mass produce/fabricate this barristor. I guess Samsung could figure it out, but what is the likelihood.

Need to know barrier height to calculate temperature dependence.
