Graphene (single layer graphite) in nanoelectronics

The 18 April 2008 issue of Science has an article "Graphene Nanoelectronics" which introduces a paper by Ponomarenko et al. (page 356), which discusses quantum dots.

A figure on page 324 has a pyrene fragment, which along with other graphene fragments, is postulated to be a graphene-based single electron transistor.


From Synchrotron Radiation News, 21(2), 2008:

The Shirley Award for outstanding scientific achievement went to Alessandra Lanzara and Eli Rotenberg, "for their groundbreaking work measuring the electronic structure of graphene and the use of high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) to understand the unusual transport properties of graphene associated with Dirac fermions."
