According to Yu-Ming Lin from IBM Research:

There is an important distinction between the graphene transistors that we demonstrated, and the transistors used in a CPU. Unlike silicon, ‘graphene does not have an energy gap, and therefore, graphene cannot be “switched off,†resulting in a small on/off ratio.
No off state means more energy leakage and therefore more heat. It also makes it more difficult to figure out the state of a transistor, and if IBM is correct, too difficult for it to be a viable solution when graphene is used as the base material.

yes ... but then again there are more than one article in graphene research .. and i did read somewhere that they might have a way to create an on off switch with graphene based tech


not only would it mean that it has more leakage when you can turn it off .. but how can you transport a digital signal if you cant make it say 0's or 1's at will


graphene have its problems right now ... but they will be figured out in due time ... dont worry ..

Well the actual nucleus of an atom is 10^-15, but the atom plus the electron cloud is 10^-10.

I think that the ultimate manufacturing limit will be reached organically. The ability to form DNA based computers that could replicate themselves seems like the smallest way to make a device, and the ability to manipulate and program DNA in this type of fashion increases every day. It would not surprise me if this is already being done.

Then they all network themselves, start wondering about religion and philosophy, and soon attack our home world and we'll have to resort to thousands of spacecraft as our home will be overrun by the Ge-

Oh, nevermind.
