Chemists develop new material that gives graphene competition
German scientists developed a new ultra-thin material that could provide another option for replacing silicon in electronic devices. Silicon for decades served as the material of choice in electronics production, but the element is hard, brittle and approaching its size constraints. A possible replacement emerged with the development of graphene, a thin layer of carbon atoms that helped British scientists win the Nobel Prize for physics in 2010.
