Graphene-based modulator promises ultra-fast comms

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have created a graphene-based optical modulator that they think could lead to digital communications up to 10 times faster than is possible with currently-deployed technology.Graphene is a one-atom thick layer of crystallised carbon that many hope will overcome the limitations of silicon and lead to viable quantum computing.

Carbon copy the future of physics

More exciting news from the increasingly carboniferous world of solid state physics. A paper from two researchers, Yakov Kopelevich in San Paulo and Pablo Esquinaz in Leipzig, reports that good old fashioned graphite has a whole bunch of exciting electronic properties and that this, rather than the currently fashionable single-atomic-sheet graphene, may well prove to be the most worthwhile substance to investigate for spintronics and other new ideas.
