IBM produced RF ICs on an 8" graphene wafer

IBM has managed to produce RF integrated circuits on an 8" graphene wafer. IBM says that this demonstration is a "major step in transitioning this promising material from a scientific curiosity into a real technology". The graphene was grown on copper foil from high-temperature vapor and later coated with the polymer PMMA.
These are RF devices - as it's still difficult to create logic using graphene (it has no natural bandgap), although some researchers are working towards methods to fix this issue.
