graphene could semiconduct

A team of researchers from three US universities has demonstrated a way to vary the number of electrons in a give region of a piece of graphene. The team says this is a proof of principle in the creation of semiconductor devices using the so called 'wonder material'. It adds that the number of electrons can be tuned through the application of an electric field and says this could enable future devices to be 'rewired' dynamically.
