Graphene Breakthrough material means faster thinner computers

A breakthrough in controlling graphene could see the highly conductive and super-strong ‘wonder material’ replace silicon and change the face of electronics, leading to faster, thinner gadgets.
Researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago have made a giant step in overcoming one of the hurdles blocking the development of graphene for use in everyday devices – that it’s difficult to electrically ‘turn off’ the flow of current through it.
Now scientists have found a way of chemically altering the material to ‘tune’ its electronic properties and make it more functional
