By Kate McAlpine A “RACETRACK” capable of shuttling electrons around at high speed has set a new record for silicon chips, the cornerstone of computing. Electrical resistance imposes a strict speed limit on electrons travelling through silicon. To break this limit, computer scientists are considering replacing silicon with carbon, as atom-thick sheets of carbon, or graphene,
