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)
