Because of graphene’s physical properties, electronics made from the material may be cheaper and speedier than current technology. In a step toward practical graphene electronics for telecommunications, engineers at the IBM have made graphene transistors that break speed records for devices made from the material (Nano Lett., DOI: 10.1021/nl300904k).

Transistors are electronic devices, usually made from semiconductor materials, that can turn on, turn . . .
