ORNL makes scalable arrays of 'building blocks' for ultrathin electronics
Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Jul 27, 2015
Semiconductors, metals and insulators must be integrated to make the transistors that are the electronic building blocks of your smartphone, computer and other microchip-enabled devices. Today's transistors are miniscule--a mere 10 nanometers wide--and formed from three-dimensional (3D) crystals. But a disruptive new technology looms that uses two-dimensional (2D) crystals, just 1 nanometer thick, to enable ultrathin electronics. Scientists worldwide are investigating 2D crystals made from common ... read more
