Scientists grow atomically thin transistors and circuits
Quote:In an advance that helps pave the way for next-generation electronics and computing technologies—and possibly paper-thin gadgets —scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) developed a way to chemically assemble transistors and circuits that are only a few atoms thick.
What's more, their method yields functional structures at a scale large enough to begin thinking about real-world applications and commercial scalability.

And:

Quote:In addition, the scientists demonstrated the applicability of the structure by assembling it into the logic circuitry of an inverter. This further underscores the technology's ability to lay the foundation for a chemically assembled atomic computer, the scientists say.
"Both of these two-dimensional crystals have been synthesized in the wafer scale in a way that is compatible with current semiconductor manufacturing. By integrating our technique with other growth systems, it's possible that future computing can be done completely with atomically thin crystals," says Zhao.

Future news --

In the news today -- a California company has developed an microchip so small, it got lost behind a couple of molecules - and hasn't been seen since....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
