Graphene can help tune into terahertz technology

Posted on

1000000 MB/s internet could be on the way thanks to wonder material graphene and the University of Manchester. Researchers at the University of Manchester believe that the electrical properties of graphene mean that the material could be used to open up a previously under-explored area of technology – terahertz lasers. According to a team of […]


Graphene – the start of a new technological revolution
