New Graphene Discovery Could Finally Punch the Gas Pedal, Drive Faster CPUs – ExtremeTech

There are, broadly speaking, two major problems with graphene. The first problem is the difficulty in producing it at scale. The second is its electrical conductivity. The latter might seem like an odd problem, given that graphene’s phenomenal electrical properties are the reason semiconductor manufacturers are interested in it in the first place. But graphene’s unique capabilities also make it difficult to stop the material from conducting electricity. Silicon has a band gap — an energy range where it doesn’t conduct electricity. Graphene, in its pure form, does not. While a handful of methods of producing a band gap in graphene have been found, none of them have been suitable for mass production. That may finally change, thanks to a team from the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), who have found a way to create a graphene bandgap that’s identical to silicon’s.

Nu åbner Bilka ToGo i Aalborg | Nordjyske.dk

SKALBORG: Banerne er streget op og klar og skiltene er på plads. Og torsdag 19. april kl. 14 kan de første bestilte varer hentes i udleveringen hos Bilka ToGo i Skalborg.

– Vi er SÅ klar, fortæller Bianca Simonsen, der er leder af Bilka Skalborgs ny ToGo-afdeling.

Hun fortæller, at der åbnes for de første bestillinger onsdag 18. april. kl. 10.01.

Hele ideen med det ny koncept er, at du kan købe ind i Bilka uden at stå ud af din bil. Alle de varer, du gerne vil have, bliver bragt ud til dig i bilen af Bilka-medarbejdere – endda smilende, lover Bianca Simonsen.
