Read the sentences below. Give Russian equivalents to word combinations in bold.

Find relative clauses in the sentences.

1 The researchers’ experimental chip uses two materials with very different lattice sizes: molibybdenum disulfide and grapheme, which is a single-atom-thick layer of carbon.

It’s the strongest known material, but it also has the highest known electron mobility, a measure of how rapidly electrons move through it. As such, it’s an excellent candidate for use in thin-filmelectronics or, indeed, in any nanoscale electronic devices.

2 The layers of material in the researchers’ experimental chip are extremely thin – between one and three atoms thick. Consequently, this work could abet efforts to manufacture thin, flexible, transparent computing devices, which could be laminated onto other materials.

3 The technique also has implications for the development of the ultralow-power, high-speedcomputing devices known as tunneling transistors and, potentially, for integration of optical components into computer chips.



34A Work in pairs. Write a definition for each of the collocations below. Use a dictionary if necessary but write the definitions in your own words.


Student A:                                        Student B:
