Adding kinks to graphene strips creates the world’s tiniest microchip


Graphene itself has some incredibly useful properties, as an ultra-strong, ultra-thin and flexible conductor of heat and electricity. By making alterations to the underlying structure of this wonder material, scientists at the University of Sussex have extended its capabilities even further to create the tiniest microchips yet.
As a two-dimensional sheets of carbon with a thickness of a single atom, graphene is an incredibly versatile material with great potential in many areas. We’ve seen how these sheets could be wrinkled to become advanced water filters, scrunched up to become ultra-sensit
