UC Berkeley professors have built graphene nanoribbons that can transport data faster than silicon.

Strips of carbon synthesized by UC Berkeley professors to be nearly 10,000 times thinner than the width of a human hair could accelerate the transportation of data at unprecedented speeds, with far-reaching implications into the fields of technology and medicine.

UC researchers funded to study nuclear energy

Three University of California campuses have received $5.4 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to fund nuclear energy research over the next several years, beginning what some researchers have said will be a transformation in the way nuclear energy is generated in this country. As part of the department’s
