  • Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) are materials with properties distinct from those of other carbon allotropes. The all-semiconducting nature of sub-10-nm GNRs could bypass the problem of the extreme chirality dependence of the metal or semiconductor nature of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in future electronics. Currently, making GNRs using lithographic, chemical or sonochemical methods is challenging. It is difficult to obtain GNRs with smooth edges and controllable widths at high yields. Here we show an… CONTINUE READING
