  • And THESE ARE THE contents……
  • NOW basically what THE gRaphene is all about?Graphene. If you’ve never heard about it, don’t worry, a lot of people haven’t, because it’s really only been “discovered” relatively recently, and most of the truly interesting news about it has been in the couple of years.
  • Stronrst material……..200 times stronger than steel…..It is packed in the sense that all molecules are equal in size…
  • Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms, may be the most amazing and versatile substance available to mankind
  • In 1960’s it was believed that physically graphene cannot exist a because of thermodynamic unstability
  • They were awarded by the Nobel Prize at the University of Manchester ,2010
  • "ballistic" transport could lead to a new generation of superfast, super-efficient electronics.exciting engineers and scientists all over the world with grand new possibilities for all sorts of applications…* Since bus on the motherboard are basic building block which is made of copper.We know that copper is a basic building block of most of the integrated circuit….Gap between valence band and conduction band is very small…..So we can say that at todays date graphene is said to be strongest element on earth……So we can replace copper by graphene in IC’s….
  • and performed parametric wavelength conversion at telecommunication wavelengthsActive components rely on a source of energy (usually from the DC circuit, which we have chosen to ignore) and usually can inject power into a circuit, though this is not part of the definition.[1] Active components include amplifying components such as transistors, triode vacuum tubes (valves), and tunnel diodes.Passive components can't introduce net energy into the circuit. They also can't rely on a source of power, except for what is available from the (AC) circuit they are connected to. As a consequence they can't amplify (increase the power of a signal), although they may increase a voltage or current (such as is done by a transformer or resonant circuit). Passive components include two-terminal components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, and transformers.
  • Which use in transistorAs electrons can fastly transfer through it switch on/off at very high rate as compared to traditional transistors more than tera hertz….. Since we require control over flow of eletrons through it we use bilayer grapheneBECAUSE IN SINGLE LAYER GRAPHENE IT IS DIFFICULT TO CONTROL SPEED OF ELECTRONS….
  • Graphene-silicon hybrid photonic chip is an important step forward in building all-optical processing elements.We’re talking about that smartphone in your pocket having a thousand times the computing power of your desktop PC, but using no more power than it does right now.that even though it’s running at 1000 times the speed
  • In silicon,roomtemp does not allow electros to jump from valenece band to conduction band..bcoz energy gap is more in silicon………
  • Charge-based memory devices such as dynamic random access memory and flash memory, while omnipresent today, proves promising next generation nonvolatile memory change in resistanceResistive RAM
  • Graphene is the wonder material that could solve the problem of making ever fastercomputers and smaller mobile devices when current silicon microchip technology hits an inevitablewall. Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms in a tight hexagonal arrangement, has been highlyresearched because of its incredible electronic properties, with theoretical speeds 100 times greaterthan silicon. But putting the material into a microchip that could outperform current silicontechnology has proven difficult.
  • Optical->electricalElectrical->opticalX-rays
  • Graphene promises to revolutionize electronics but we're still waiting for graphene-based technologies to hit the market. Rice University researchers have now created transparent, graphene-based electrodes that they say could be the "killer app" that finally puts graphene into the commercial spotlight.
  • As ITO is used in almost evrey SMARTPHONE,so indium getting RARE and EXPENSIVE
  • If anyone is thinking that, why is grapheme for the sensor then the simple answer to this question is that, because of its transparency. Only 2.3% of the passing light is absorbed by this single layer of carbon cells, and the whole process of filtering light is even all across the whole light spectrum. This is the main reason why Nokia believes that this sensor would perform much better than its CMOS sensors in low light conditions.We can capture good images in moon light
  • in the not-too-distant future.Roll-to-roll production of 30-inch graphene films for transparent electrodes
  • Obviously, ultrafast computers are going to have a very far-reaching effect on the way we do things, as well as how we interact with each other and our world, so the real questions are how practical is it to make graphene chips, and how soon can they be made? The answer is probably going to surprise you. Graphene has already been proven to be usable in current chip manufacturing processes with only
  • graphene will not replace silicon in microelectronics; probably, silicon will still be at the heart of computers and microprocessors, but graphene will allow information processing and communication to reach a new level of diffusion in our life; materials
  • Below, from Rice University why I think the 2030 silicon estimate may be a little too pessimistic. Replacing silicon is the golden fleece of graphene research. There’s too much money to be made by whoever gets there first. I suspect it will be closer to 2020, but then I’m a trader and not a scientist
