Epitaxial Graphene Home

The Georgia Tech Materials Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), funded  by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is located in the Georgia Tech Marcus Nanotechnology Building. The  initial focus of the center is research and development on epitaxial  graphene (EG), a material with extraordinary electronic properties that  offers the possibility of greatly enhanced speed and performance  relative to silicon; this material may serve as the successor to silicon  in integrated circuits and microelectronic devices. Georgia Tech Physics  Professors Walt de Heer, Ed Conrad, and Phil First are world leaders  in the growth and characterization of EG.
