Scientists: Next generation computers can perform much faster with graphene.
Scientists have claimed that the next generation computers can be made more powerful with the help of world’s thinnest substance “graphene”.
Graphene was discovered by the scientists at the University of Manchester in 2004 and this substance contains only one layer of atoms.
Current electronic systems are being made of silicon but researchers found that electrons travel a lot more quickly in graphene than they do in silicon.
Professor Kostya Novoselov who won the shared Nobel prize with Professor Andre Geim for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene told the Independent: “Electrons in graphene have huge mobility, they travel very fast,”
“It’s quite a big result in terms of the physics and it may have some implications in terms of potential applications.”
Due to the flexible properties of this material the gadgets can be rolled up like pencil so now we can expect great changes in our new systems.
