Graphene nanoelectronics is an emerging area of research. The 2010 Nobel Prize for physics was awarded to A. Geim and K. Novoselov for the discovery of graphene and its unexpected physical properties, paving the way for many new applications in the area of nanoelectronics, nanooptics, and solid state physics. The most-studied microwave device is the graphene transistor, which, in only three years, has reached a cutoff frequency of 100 GHz. As consequence of this impressive development, the prediction that a 0.5-1 THz graphene FET transistor will soon be demonstrated is quite realistic. Moreover, graphene multipliers and other microwave graphene devices are expected to follow the graphene FET development dynamics and reach 100 GHz in few years.
