Complementary metal–oxide– semiconductor (CMOS)-based integrated circuits use metal interconnect wires, which are made of aluminium and, more recently, copper, to provide electrical connections between the various circuit components. As technology node scaling has continued to fit more devices per square inch of silicon, interconnect wire cross-sections have needed to shrink, leading to increased resistivity, heating and electromigration issues. Recent investigations into the use of metals with…

Electronic transport across extended grain boundaries in graphene

Owing to its superlative carrier mobility and atomic thinness, graphene exhibits great promise for interconnects in future nanoelectronic integrated circuits. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD), the

Optoelectronic mixing with high-frequency graphene transistors

Graphene is ideally suited for optoelectronics. It offers absorption at telecom wavelengths, high-frequency operation and CMOS-compatibility. We show how high speed optoelectronic mixing can be
