The future of electronics -- now in 2-D
Columbus OH (SPX) Feb 20, 2015
The future of electronics could lie in a material from its past, as researchers from The Ohio State University work to turn germanium--the material of 1940s transistors--into a potential replacement for silicon. At the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting, assistant professor of chemistry Joshua Goldberger reported progress in developing a form of germanium called germanane. In 2013, Goldberger's lab at Ohio State became the first to succeed at creating one-atom-thick ... read more
