Nano material could boost new microchips
"The new material we are predicting—graphone—makes graphene magnetic simply by controlling the amount of hydrogen coverage—basically, how much hydrogen is put on grapheme," said Puru Jena, Ph.D., distinguished professor in the Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Physics. "It avoids previous difficulties associated with the synthesis of magnetic grapheme."
"One of the important impacts of this research is that semi-hydrogenation provides us a very unique way to tailor magnetism. The resulting ferromagnetic graphone sheet will have unprecedented possibilities for the applications of graphene-based materials," said Qiang Sun, Ph.D., research associate professor with the VCU team.
