Journal jd's Journal: 1nm transistors on graphene

Well, it now appears the University of Manchester in England has built 1nm transistors on graphene. The article is short on details, but it appears to be a ring of carbon atoms surrounding a quantum dot, where the quantum dot is not used for quantum computing or quantum states but rather for regulating the electrical properties. This is still a long way from building a practical IC using graphene. It is, however, a critical step forward. The article mentions other bizare behaviours of graphene but does not go into much detail. This is the smallest transistor produced to date.
