Researchers discover 3D material that behaves like graphene


This illustration depicts fast-moving, massless electrons inside cadmium arsenide.

Researchers from Oxford, SLAC, and Berkeley Lab have found that cadmium arsenide could yield practical devices with the same extraordinary electronic properties as 2D graphene. The researchers also found that the new “semimetal” material exists in a sturdy 3D form that should be much easier to shape into electronic devices such as very fast transistors, sensors and transparent electrodes.
