Nanoribbons will pave the way to broad implications for the future of quantum electronics

Scientists from the Honda Research Institute USA (HRI-US) have synthesized 'nanoribbons', which are said to be atomically thin and ribbon-shaped materials. Scientists have stated that this discovery will pave the way to broad implications for the future of quantum electronics, especially in the quantum mechanics sector. It will help scientists to work on the behavior of electrons in matter.

HRI-US has synthesized this material using a novel nanomaterial synthesis approach. It has built the material on an ultra-narrow two-dimensional material that is primarily built on a single or double layer of atoms which has an ability to control the width of the two-dimensional materials to sub-10 nanometer range which results in quantum transport behavior even at much higher temperatures compared to currently used methods.

The team of scientists at HRI-US has stated that they see an immediate opportunity to use nanoribbons in high speed, low-energy consumption electronics and in various other physics-related researches such as quantum monitoring, sensing quantum, and neuromorphic computing. This novel material and synthesis process will be creating a significant breakthrough in the field of growth of 2D materials.
