Graphene: Future IT
For 40 years, silicon technology has followed Moore’s Law, doubling in performance every 18 months without doubling in price. This feat, unparalleled in history, has driven the global economy and revolutionised our lives. But that miracle will be coming to an end, probably not much more than a decade from now, when silicon runs out of room for improvement. What then?
Graphene is a new form of carbon with unrivalled potential and some very strange physics indeed. It is now shaping up to take over from silicon. Find out how this 21st-century material is winning hearts, minds and Nobel prizes.
