    "...Although the quality of the material is far from perfect, the research group can now show parameters of spin that are up to six times higher than those previously reported for CVD graphene on a similar substrate...."

    So now it looks more certain than ever that graphene will lead to future spintronics that would revolutionize the electronics industry by making microchips thousands of time more energy efficient by representing the 0 and 1 signals with electron spin rather than with electric charge.

    Well, actually, the last sentence should be 'with electron flow'. Charge is static if in an insulator.

    I think there are other games in town also, Like this Magnetoelectronics:
