Ballistic Transport in Graphene Nanoribbons

Ballistic Transport in Graphene Nanoribbons

Conceptual drawing of an electronic circuit comprised of interconnected graphene nanoribbons (black atoms) that are epitaxially grown on steps etched in silicon carbide (yellow atoms).  Electrons (blue) travel ballistically along the ribbon and then from one ribbon to the next via the metal contacts. Electron flow is modulated by electrostatic gates. (Image courtesy of John Hankinson)
