Graphene ‘multiplies’ power of light

Graphene can convert a single absorbed photon into “multiple” electrons that can drive electric current – which the ICFO, Barcelona-led research team describe as “a very promising discovery” that makes graphene an important alternative material for light harvesting technologies, now based on conventional semiconductors like silicon.

World’s thinnest substance graphene ‘will power the next generation of computers’

The researchers found that electrons travel a lot more quickly in graphene than they do in silicon; the substance current computer chips are made out of. A new generation of computers and smartphones could run much faster if they were made from the world’s thinnest substance, scientists have claimed.
