Graphene is an isolated material for the first time in 2004 by a group of scientists from the University of Manchester. Since then, it has been dubbed "wonder material" due to its numerous extraordinary properties. It is the thinnest material known to man, but it is also incredibly strong. It is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity, as well as flexible and transparent. In short, graphene has the potential to revolutionize many industries, including semiconductors.
Semiconductors are materials used to create electronic devices such as transistors, solar cells, and LED lights. They are composed of a variety of materials, including carbon, silicon, germanium, and silicon-germanium. The most common type of semiconductor is silicon, which makes up 90% of all world semiconductor production.
The global demand for semiconductors is only increasing as more and more reliance is placed on electronic devices. The market is expected to grow from $ 409 billion in 2017 to $ 573 billion by 2025. This increased demand creates two challenges for the semiconductor industry: 1) how to meet this growing demand and 2) how to improve existing technology?
Graphene supercapacitors have the potential to revolutionize the semiconductor world by solving both challenges. Supercapacitors are energy storage devices capable of charging and discharging rapidly.
They can store more energy than conventional batteries
and can last up to 10 times longer. Graphene-based supercapacitors could be used to power electronic devices for extended periods of time without needing to be recharged.
A revolution for semiconductors
One notable factor is that graphene-based supercapacitors can be produced by a process called chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This process is scalable and could be used to mass produce graphene supercapacitors. This would help meet the growing demand for semiconductors while improving existing technology
Graphene-based supercapacitors have the potential to revolutionize the world of semiconductors, helping to meet the growing demand for these devices and improving existing technology.
That's why the "wonder material" could forever change the way we power our electronic devices.
