Project Details


Objective:The objective of the Graphene Molecular Electronics BRC effort is to explore and exploit the possibility of building electronic devices and circuits from the bottom up, using graphene as a platform, with atomic precision and Angstrom resolution. The program will pursue fundamental research toward building carbon based nanoelectronics from the molecular level up, using molecular synthesis, surface catalytic chemistry and other novel techniques.Approach:The BRC team proposes an integrated approach to tackle the challenges inherent to carbon nanoelectronics by combining experimental and theoretical efforts to realize new graphene-based nanostructures with atomic precision by bottom-up chemical approaches. They will explore novel properties of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and realize prototype devices incorporating electronic, spintronic, and photonic functionalities. The success of the project will open concrete perspectives for the realization of graphene-based scalable quantum devices.ONR Mission/Relevance:Graphene as an active electronic material has the potential to allow fabrication of 1 atomic layer thick electronic devices, greatly shrinking electronics and reducing the power consumption of electronic devices. This basic research effort is to improve the scientific understanding of graphene, further develop and validate the theory, and open pathways for the exploitation of this novel material for nanoelectronics.
