Claire Berger, a physics professor at Georgia Tech, holds a graphene device grown on a silicon carbide substrate chip.

Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology may have identified the material that will replace silicon in the next generation of tinier and more efficient computer chips.

With silicon nearly maxed out in its ability to accommodate faster computing, scientists say a new large nanoelectronics platform is needed, now more than ever.

In the search for a material that could replace silicon, grap...
