Two-Dimensional Versions of High-K Materials Offer New Future for Chips

Chip makers appreciate what most consumers never knew: silicon's virtues include the fact that it 'rusts' in a way that insulates its tiny circuitry. Two new ultrathin materials share that trait and outdo silicon in other ways that make them promising materials for electronics of the future.

Two-Dimensional Versions of High-K Materials Offer New Future for Chips

Thinning high-K materials down to two dimensions offers the same band gap as a silicon transistor but ten times smaller

New ultrathin semiconductor materials exceed some of silicon's 'secret' powers

The next generation of feature-filled and energy-efficient electronics will require computer chips just a few atoms thick. For all its positive attributes, trusty silicon can't take us to these ...

New ultrathin semiconductor materials exceed some of silicon's 'secret' powers, Fri 11 Aug 17 from ScienceDaily

Super-thin semiconductors delay the 'death' of silicon

Silicon has been the backbone of processors for decades, but it's rapidly approaching its physical limits: making a chip on a process smaller than 5 nanometers is usually impossible ...
