At the Edge of Graphene-Based Electronics

Regents’ Professor Walter de Heer has taken a critical step in the case for a successor to silicon, working with collaborators to develop a new nanoelectronics platform based on graphene — a single sheet of carbon atoms. The technology is compatible with conventional microelectronics manufacturing, and the new research, published in Nature Communications, shows the team may have also discovered a new quasiparticle. 

Healing Breath: Researchers Dramatically Improve Inhalable mRNA Therapy

Messenger RNA, or mRNA, has been used to immunize millions of people in just the past few years. Among the most likely targets for future mRNA therapies are the lungs, given the large number of pulmonary diseases, such as the coronavirus, influenza, asthma, cystic fibrosis, and others. Now, a team of multi-disciplinary investigators from five universities, led by Georgia Tech faculty researchers, has provided a potential path toward that future.
