Experimental Confirmation of Large Magnetoresistance in Graphene Nanoribbons
By UCLA Samueli Newsroom
GNRs are thin strips of graphene, or unrolled single-walled carbon nanotubes, and have been theorized as a possible alternative to copper for integrated circuit interconnects. To show the electrical transport characteristics, the UCLA team fabricated graphene nanoribbon field-effect transistors (FET).
