Purdue University researchers are developing a new type of semiconductor technology for future computers and electronics that could replace today’s CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) transistors.
It’s based on “two-dimensional nanocrystals” layered in sheets less than one nanometer thick.
The layered structure is made of a material called molybdenum disulfide, which belongs to a new class of semiconductors — metal di-chalogenides.
The nanocrystals are… read more
