Office of Naval Research logoWelcome to the website of the “Graphene Approaches to Terahertz Electronics” (GATE) MURI, projet sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. Under this program, investigators from MIT, Harvard and Boston University work closely together in a mulidisciplinary new approach to advance the science, technology and applications of nanostructured graphene.

The GATE MURI program aims to use bandgap engineering and the unique properties of graphene to develop the basic building blocks of graphene Terahertz (THz) electronics and to accelerate its insertion into DoD applications. This goal will be achieved by the combined work and ingenuity of a multidisciplinary team with great experience in the basic physics, chemistry and nanotechnology of graphene, as well as in the design, fabrication and modeling of state-of-the-art electronic devices and advanced circuit architectures.
