TITLEGraphene electronics: current challenges and future prospects

ABSTRACTThe need to find high performance materials for the next generation of nanoelectronic devices has recently stimulated a great deal of interest in the electronic properties of graphene. Graphene has particular technological appeal because it contains a high mobility gas of charge carriers whose density and polarity is easily tuned using local electric fields. While the performance of graphene devices potentially exceeds that of conventional semiconductors, the mobility, “on/off” conductance ratio, and stability of devices presently falls short of expectations. In this seminar I will discuss recent developments in the growth, fabrication, and measurement of large-area and nanostructured graphene electronic devices.
