The researchers at the IBM announced on Thursday that they have successfully designed high speed circuits from an ultra thin, low cost material, graphene.
The new ICs can be used for the development of a number of applications in the new generation of smart phones and television displays, besides the high bandwidth communication.
New IC made from graphene
In their report, the researchers illustrated the method by which they deposited many layers of graphene on a wafer of silicon, and then created circuits based on components known as inductors along with graphene transistors.
Earlier, the researchers from IBM had been successful in creating stand alone transistors, but were not able to make complete circuits.
