Researchers from Germany and Sweden have developed a new method for creating a transistor from graphene, according to an artlcle at Phys.org.
The headline, "Researchers devise a way to create a graphene transistor," is a bit misleading. Researchers have been making transistors out of graphene for some time now, and have been using a process based on silicon carbide, like the German-Swedish research.
The real breakthrough for this latest line of research, which was published 17 July in the journal Nature Communications ("Tailoring the graphene/silicon carbide interface for monolithic wafer-scale electronics"), appears to be how they engineered all the constituent parts of the transistor.
