ok, thanks Colin. Maybe 2D Graphene will find a better place in chip in coming decade then.

The 3D graphene is replacing the platinum electrode in a die sensitized solar cell, but the researchers believe it can also be used for other bulk-material applications, such as battery electrodes. Because it is made with a wet chemistry process, I would not expect the same technique to be used on chips which mostly use vapor deposition.

Graphene is the new wonder material on the block. It has come a long way since last decade but any real IC application is yet to be seen.

So, if i understood it correctly then 3D graphene is providing conductive interface to the outside world...then why not apply this technology to the normal semiconductor process? Or the application is only tuned for solar cells.

There is lots of research on this topic but actualy very little evolution...despite all the hype you see about "other solutions" industry is now 99% silicond after CdTe exit

All of above...the process looks very complicated

There is so mcuh going on about the solar cells and the best is yet to come. There could be a day we run only with solar energy.

Whats your specific concern Krisi .. Are you worried about the process stability/reproducibility or your concern is process cost?

The weekly reports of promising breakthroughs in solar cell technology tell me that we're looking at a technology in the midst of rapid change. It would appear that patience is needed before building any fabrication plants since just about when they come on-line is the date that they're obsolete. I can't wait until the technology stabilizes at a new economical price point and solar cells become a very competitive product for home power generation.

So far the researchers have only tested 3-D graphene's conductivity and performance in die-sensitized solar cells. Next they will optimize the process, at which point they will likely address the issues of longevity and stability.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
