Application of Graphene to High-Speed Transistors: Expectations and Challenges (17 pages) This paper is an excellent summary of the background and progress and challenges for using graphene for then next generation faster computers and electronics.
The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) committee has added carbon materials including CNT and graphene to the list of promising materials or technologies for future high-performance LSI, and has been discussing the feasibility. On the other hand, at a meeting held in 2009, the discussion was made under an assumption that the realization of graphene-based technologies would not come before 2019. The meaning of this is that it will require a long time of research and development for the realization of graphene-based devices because, in spite of its wonderful potentiality, the research and development of graphene are still at an early and basic stage and there are still a number of technical challenges.
