Chip miniaturization extended by strontium titanate

Researchers have found a way to use strontium titanate applied to a silicon wafer to extend the miniaturization and speed of transistors.
Silicon currently limits chip miniaturization because at a few atomic layers it loses its insulating property. Applying a strontium titanate layer overcomes that limit, according to simulations by Austrian researchers.
