Graphene nanoribbons created by physicists at the Georgia Institute of Technology can conduct electricity much better than was expected, according to findings published in Nature. The new graphene nanoribbons differ from other forms by having no rough edges, says research team leader Walt de Heer, allowing electrons to move 10 times more swiftly than theory says they should. The results could have implications in the development of high-end electronics.
