Making Contact: New Study Quantifies the Electron Transport Effects of Placing Metal Contacts onto Graphene

Using large-scale supercomputer calculations, researchers have analyzed how the placement of metallic contacts on graphene changes the electron transport properties of the material as a factor of junction length, width and orientation.

Using large-scale supercomputer calculations, researchers have analyzed how the placement of metallic contacts on graphene changes the electron transport properties of the material as a factor of junction length, width and orientation.  The work is believed to be the first quantitative study of electron transport through metal-graphene junctions to examine earlier models in significant detail.
