Graphene Based Electronic Device

Authors: Pejman Hosseiniun, Ali Safari, Iman Rahbari, Mohamad Reza Kalhor


The semiconductor industry is placing an increased emphasis on emerging materials and devices that may provide improved performance, or provide novel functionality for devices. Recently, graphene, as a true two-dimensional carbon material, has shown fascinating applications in electronics. In this paper detailed discussions are introduced for possible applications of grapheme Transistor in RF and digital devices.
