The practical realization of nanoscale electronics faces two major challenges: the precise engineering of the building blocks and their assembly into functional circuits. In spite of the exceptional electronic properties of carbon nanotubes, only basic demonstration devices have been realized that require time-consuming processes. This is mainly due to a lack of selective growth and reliable assembly processes for nanotubes. However, graphene offers an attractive alternative. Here we report the… 
Scalable templated growth of graphene nanoribbons on SiC.
TLDR
This work demonstrates the self-organized growth of graphene nanoribbons on a templated silicon carbide substrate prepared using scalable photolithography and microelectronics processing, and proves the scalability of this approach by fabricating 10,000 top-gated graphene transistors on a 0.24-cm(2) SiC chip, which is the largest density of graphene devices reported to date.

Energy gaps in graphene nanoribbons.
TLDR
The authors' ab initio calculations show that the origin of energy gaps for GNRs with armchair shaped edges arises from both quantum confinement and the crucial effect of the edges, which differs from the results of simple tight-binding calculations or solutions of the Dirac's equation based on them.
