Graphene, the two-dimensional crystal of carbon, has many extraordinary properties and characteristics which are either unique or surpass those of other materials. The fundamental properties of graphene are making it an attractive material for a wide variety of applications. And a potentially disruptive technology, is all the properties that are combined into one material like strong, flexible, transparent, and an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity - make it ideal for a wide range of real-world applications in areas such as electronics, biomedicine, energy and composites, The uptake of graphene will be driven by confidence in its performance and progress in its production with properties appropriate for specific application.
A semiconductor is a substance, usually a solid chemical element or compound, that can conduct electricity under some conditions but not others, making it a good medium for the control of electrical current. Its conductance varies depending on the current or voltage. The specific properties of a semiconductor depend on the impurities, or dopants, added to it Elemental semiconductors include antimony, arsenic, boron, carbon, germanium, selenium, silicon, sulfur, and tellurium. Silicon is the best-known of these, forming the basis of most integrated circuits (ICs). A semiconductor device can perform the function of a vacuum tube having hundreds of times its volume.
