Honing in on graphene electronics with infrared synchrotron radiation
Researchers at the ALS Infrared Beamlines, the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), working with colleagues at Columbia University in New York and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Florida have measured the extraordinary properties of graphene with an accuracy never before achieved. The results confirm many of the strangest features of the unusual material but also reveal significant departures from theoretical predictions. And they point the way to novel practical applications, such as tunable optical modulators for communications and other nanoscale electronics. The researchers report their findings in the June issue of the journal Nature Physics.
