An anonymous reader writes: Silicon is so 20th century: enter carbon transistors which promise to turn every computer into a supercomputer. Carbon transistors are 10,000 times faster, way smaller, super lower power and offer the advantages of both silicon and gallium arsenide in a single semiconductor process. Manufacturing carbon transistors is difficult, but now researchers say they have perfected a cheap, easy "stamping" technique using graphene--atomically thin layers of carbon atoms--derived from blocks of readily available graphite.
