graphene electronics

Graphene, the two-dimensional form of carbon, after its recent experimental demonstration has been attracting a lot of interest not only in the physics community but also in the electronic industry, due to its extraordinary physical properties. At IMM an intensive research activity is going along considering both the theoretical and the experimental approach. Theoretical approaches are related to the development of multiscale models and tools for transport properties. The challenge of the experimental activity is to demonstrate high performance and/or innovative devices. Achievements are process capability on both flakes deposited by graphite exfoliation and epilayer grown on SiC. Novelties related on advanced characterisation methods have been also recently published.
