New Monolayer Material Could Unlock Nano-Scale Electronics

The electronics industry is constantly striving to make components smaller without sacrificing too much performance. 

Research out of New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering has found a new method for developing electronics at the atomic scale — and it’s difficult to get much smaller than that.

Scientists and engineers have previously tried developing electronics using two-dimensional or monolayer electronic materials like graphene to make transistors, but found that the material’s lack of an energy band gap poses difficulties for semiconductor applications.
