Graphene may be a candidate for the post-silicon world, but it will take some time and significant engineering adjustments to make that happen. There are of course other candidates, including more silicon. But graphene is definitely one material that keeps coming up in conversations about the end of Moore's Law.

The problem with CMOS is that there are too many alternatives with relatively high risks in implementing or developing any of the technology. Putting Graphene or carbon nanotube or any other non-silicon material require a new learning about these material by industry which is difficult.

It's not just quantum computing, it's the search for a new transistor to replace CMOS when Moore's Law hits the wall in not too many years. With all the research on exploiting the amazing properties of graphene, it seems that graphene is a likely candidate for the transistor in the post-CMOS era.

I am always amazed to see the new properties of graphene, it seems that this material could be the next generation "silicon revolution".  I do wonder though, how long it will be before we start to see real world uses for these newly demonstrated properties?  Will it take years or just a real world problem that can only be solved using graphene's unique properties.. time will tell.  Anyone have a guess or a thought on the timelines?

Is there a future in quantum computing? Has anyone heard of projects aimed at achieving that goal that are currently underway? I'm very curious and wouldn't mind doing a follow-up on a similar topic if there's a good story out there on quantum computing.

Very good research article. This is first in Graphene but not the first spin/current base quantum computing.

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
