Graphene may replace silicon for Technology industry

Researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), are first in the world to invent a technique for semiconductor production from graphene.

Graphene is the super strong, super thin, conductive, transparent and self-repairing material.



The method involves growing semiconductor-nanowires on graphene and in order to achieve this, researchers “bomb” the graphene surface with arsenic molecules and gallium atoms, thereby creating a network of extremely small nanowires.

This new method for creating semiconductors grown on the super material, could see graphene commercialized in the next few years.
