Now I know those boys deserve their Nobel prizes  :thumbsup:

I think you have the link wrong on this post DD, or am I missing something?

DD1975

Glad you spotted the deliberate mistake Data, nice to see you're paying attention  :untrue:

Here is the correct link:

I read this. Weird properties indeed.

A material that will stop helium and ethanol but allow water to pass. This could revolutionise distilleries.

A graphene transister is not far away.

This is looking like the wonder material of the 21st century.

I can only imagine the processing power we will have once they stop the leakage in the resisters, and start making chips. 5 years from now we will look back at our rigs and go  :scratch-head: how did I ever use something so slow ?

It's been a while since we heard from "Wonder material" Graphene on here, and to follow up nicely on snowy's post above:

Looks good.

I did read up on graphene transistors, in "Scientific American" I think, and it appears the leakage current on the these devices is a fundamental problem. It means you can't do a digital transistor due to the off current is too high. They will make good analogue transistors though, power amps and such like.

Do you think Mrs DD will mind if I borrow the blender to whip up a batch?  :scratch-head:

Should be OK, but I would ask, just in case  :LOL:
