University of Washington researchers have have developed what they believe is the thinnest-possible semiconductor, a new class of nanoscale materials made in sheets only three atoms thick.
They joined two different single-layer semiconductor materials in a heterojunction.
The new finding could be the basis for next-generation flexible and transparent computing, better light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and solar technologies.
“Heterojunctions are fundamental elements of electronic… read more
