A publication made by Maria Temming in the science news website revealed a new property found in which adds to its numerous advantageous properties.
Graphene as a material belongs to the allotropes of carbon element obtained from graphite, has been a material that holds much hope for researchers and scientists. First was its prediction in the making of superior, light-weight, and short-time power charging and long-time power discharging battery. The battery from graphene was predicted to have the potential of changing the electrically powered machines’ technology. It can be charged within a short time and spend durable time in its discharging period.
Maria’s publication revealed that a single layer of carbon atoms can boost signals from to . Such transformation of frequency can shuttle up to 1000 times as much information per second.
The conducted with showed that Graphene-based devices could handle electromagnetic waves in the range. Meanwhile, electromagnetic waves in the range are obviously difficult to create and conventionally silicon-based have trouble in handling such high-frequency signals. That demonstrates the superiority of in handling high-frequencies.
The report said that this new property found in means it could make future much faster than today’s devices.
The test conducted by a Physicist Dmitry Turchinovich of the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany and colleagues made this new feature of to be found. A report said, “The group tested graphene’s terahertz-producing prowess by injecting a sheet of thin atom-thick material with 300-gigahertz radiation. As the electromagnetic waves hit the , electrons in the material rapidly heated and cooled off, releasing electromagnetic waves with up to seven times as high as the incoming radiation.” The 2-D material used in the test can be viewed as a super-material that conducts electricity with no resistance.
Another physicist not involved in the research exclaimed that the graphene’s ability means it was able to convert more than a thousandth, a ten-thousandth and a hundred-thousandth of the original 300-gigahertz signal into waves at 0.9, 1.5 and 2.1 respectively. Though it may seem small but such is remarkable and high for a lone layer of atoms.
“This new property found in Graphene’s 2-D material means it could be used for extremely high-speed Nanodevices and very advanced computers with high processing rates.”
With such material, it will be possible to have Graphene-based computer components that can deal in .
