Graphene Nanoribbons Emit 10 Million Photons Per Second | New Study

Graphene Nanoribbons Emit 10 Million Photons Per Second

Scientists observe high intensity light emitting from individual graphene nanoribbons. It’s 100 times more intense than the previous single-molecular optoelectronic device. The color of light, emitted by 7-atom-wide nanoribbons, can be altered by adjusting the voltage.  Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), strips of graphene with width less than 50 nanometers, are known for their highly tunable band gaps. For the first ...
