The purpose of this paper is to present an introductory overview of graphene, its properties and potential for use in interconnection applications.


This short paper has been written to provide those working on interconnect applications in the PCB and semiconductor sectors with an introductory overview of graphene and its properties. This has been achieved through a review of the published literature.


Graphene has unique properties that make it of interest for potential use in interconnection applications and, in the last few years, some workers have begun to demonstrate the possibilities for this novel material.

Research limitations/implications

This is a short introductory paper and only gives a limited overview of graphene, its properties and applications. It is based on information published in the literature and, while some examples are cited, it does not represent a comprehensive review.


The paper seeks to give an overview of what graphene is and how its unique properties offer potential for interconnection related applications. References provide the opportunity to investigate the properties of this material in more detail.
