Breaking the Silicon Barrier: Graphene Transistors Demonstrated

The largest hurdle in semiconductor miniaturization has just been shattered

Using the world's thinnest material, Graphene, researchers at the University of Manchester have created the world's smallest transistor. According to Professor Andre Geim and Dr. Kostya Novoselov from The School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester, the new transistors are only one atom thick and less than 50 atoms wide. The development opens the gate to superfast computer chips at sizes not possible before with standard Silicon transistors.

Thats great, but is there a cost effective way to manufacture them?
Silicon is nice because you can grow insulators on it just by heating it up.
