Submission + - Nascent Graphene Institute Makes Steps Towards Transistors (

judgecorp writes: "A research team at Manchester has taken a big step towards building transistors with graphene. So far graphene's marvelous conductiviity has actually proved a drawback, but the team has sandwiched a layer of molybdenum disulfide between layers of graphene to provide a high on/off ratio. Also, the British Government is finding £50 million to fund Manchester as a centre for graphene study and development, led by two professors there, Sir Kostya Novoselov and Sir Andre Geim, who shared the 2010 Nobel prize for Physics for their work on graphene."
