Researchers from Australia discovered that molybdenum oxides can be used to improve graphene’s charge-carrying capabilities. This can results in devices that are smaller and/or enable faster data transfer.
The researchers created new sheets of this hybrid material using exfoliation. Those sheets are 11 nanometers thick and can be turned into a semiconductor (to fabricate transistors for example). The final device features an electron mobility greater than 1,100 cm2/Vs - higher than the current standard for low dimensional silicon.
