Porous graphene ribbons doped with nitrogen for electronics and quantum computing

Science Daily  July 8, 2020 High concentration of nitrogen atoms in the crystal lattice causes graphene ribbons to magnetize when subjected to a magnetic field. An international team of researchers (Switzerland, UK) expect these porous, nitrogen-doped graphene ribbons to display extraordinary magnetic properties. They have produced porous graphene ribbons in which specific carbon atoms in the crystal lattice are replaced with nitrogen atoms. They demonstrated that these new graphene ribbons were no longer electrical conductors, like pure graphene, but behaved as semiconductors. According to the researchers the doped graphene ribbons could be of interest for applications in quantum computing…read more. […]
