Researchers from Germany and Sweden have developed a new method for creating a transistor from graphene , according to an artlcle at Phys.org. The headline, "Researchers devise a way to create a graphene transistor," is a bit misleading. Researchers have been making transistors out of graphene for some time now, and have been using a process based on silicon carbide , like the German-Swedish research. The real breakthrough for this latest line of research, which was published 17 July in the journal Nature Communications (“Tailoring the graphene/silicon carbide interface for monolithic wafer-scale electronics ”), appears to be how they engineered all the constituent parts of the transistor. To be honest, I am not entirely clear on how even their process diverges drastically from the IBM research. After a year of trying to figure out how to connect all the parts of the graph...
