On-surface synthesis of graphene nanoribbons could advance quantum devices

Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Oct 28, 2020
An international multi-institution team of scientists has synthesized graphene nanoribbons – ultrathin strips of carbon atoms – on a titanium dioxide surface using an atomically precise method that removes a barrier for custom-designed carbon nanostructures required for quantum information sciences. Graphene is composed of single-atom-thick layers of carbon taking on ultralight, conductive Source: NanoDaily.com On-surface synthesis of graphene nanoribbons could advance quantum devices
