Metalized Graphene to Extend Moore's Law

Having been studying graphene for over ten years, it is finally coming into play in a large variety of areas with great promise to replace metals from the very smallest scales to the largest. In semis its promise is already coming to in silicon on fabric integration creating new ways of building devices with chiplets that is opening up a whole range of new options in semis. Now it looks like it will become part of the chips themselves. It will be especially interesting to see graphene go into everything from nanometer semis to large structural constructs as the price of making it and working with it go down as we figure out new ways of making and working with it. This has the promise of taking one of the most common low cost elements and applying it to almost everything with dramatic results. I truly feel we are not at the dawn of the age of graphene. Graphene and related carbon materials have the potential to become the foundation material for almost everything we use and touch in the future, even transportation and buildings.
