Graphene Beam Splitter…

Topics: Graphene, Interferometry, Nanotechnology, Quantum Computer A graphene-based “beam splitter” for electronic currents has been built by researchers in France, South Korea, and Japan. Created by Preden Roulleau at the University of Paris and colleagues, the tunable device’s operation is directly comparable that of an optical interferometer. The technology could soon enable allow electron interferometry to beContinue reading “Graphene Beam Splitter…”

Quasiparticles, and Graphene…

Topics: Fermions, Graphene, Nanotechnology, Quantum Mechanics Researchers at the University of Manchester in the UK have identified a new family of quasiparticles in superlattices made from graphene sandwiched between two slabs of boron nitride. The work is important for fundamental studies of condensed-matter physics and could also lead to the development of improved transistors capableContinue reading “Quasiparticles, and Graphene…”
