Penn State researchers developed a way to make graphene on 100 millimeter wafers

Penn State researchers say that have developed a method of fabricating pure sheets of Graphene on 100 millimeter wafers. They are using silicon sublimation which thermally removes silicon from silicon carbide wafers leaving behind pure graphene. They say that this process can be used to make Graphene chips that are 100 to 1000 times faster than silicon, and also enable other applications such as sensors, displays, solar cells and more.
