Metal wires made of carbon complete tool kit for computers on a carbon basis

Scanning tunnel microscope image of broadband metallic graphene nanoribbon (GNR). Each cluster of protrusions corresponds to a singly occupied electron orbital. The formation of a pentagonal ring near each cluster leads to a more than ten-fold increase in the conductivity of metallic GNRs. The GNR backbone is 1.6 nanometers wide.
