Nano-origami used for smallest microchip

Researchers fold graphene and creates electronic components Metal Tech News – February 17, 2021

Physicists at the University of Sussex have combined the properties of the modern 2D material, graphene, with the ancient art of paperfolding, origami, to create the tiniest microchips to date.

The researchers have utilized the nanomaterial to behave like a transistor by creating kinks and folds in the structure of graphene. When done, a strip of graphene crinkled in a particular fashion, behaves...
