Researchers use oxides to flip graphene conductivity

By demonstrating a new way to change the amount of electrons that reside in a given region within a piece of graphene, scientists have a proof-of-principle in making the fundamental building blocks of semiconductor devices using the 2D material.

Electronic circuits with reconfigurable pathways closer to reality

Will it be possible one day to reconfigure electronic microchips however we want, even when they are in use? A recent discovery suggests as much. The researchers have demonstrated that it is possible to create conductive pathways several atoms wide in a material, to move them around at will and even to make them disappear.

Researchers make magnetic graphene

Researchers have found an ingenious way to induce magnetism in graphene while also preserving graphene's electronic properties. They have accomplished this by bringing a graphene sheet very close to a magnetic insulator - an electrical insulator with magnetic properties.
