Atom-thin transistor uses half the voltage of common semiconductors, boosts current density

Published December 14, 2020


SemiConductor Digest, Science Daily and other news outlets report on a study of a new, two-dimensional transistor made of graphene and molybdenum disulfide that could help usher in a new era of computing.

“New technologies are needed to extend the performance of electronic systems in terms of power, speed, and density. This next-generation transistor can rapidly switch while consuming low amounts of energy,” says the paper’s lead author, Huamin Li, assistant professor of electrical engineering.

Fei Yao, an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Design and Innovation, was a co-author.
