New Method For Determining How 2D Materials Expand (MIT)


A new technical paper titled "A unified approach and descriptor for the thermal expansion of two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers" was published by researchers at MIT and Southern University of Science and Technology (China). "A new technique that accurately measures how atom-thin materials expand when heated could help engineers develop faster, more powerful electronic... » read more

Nudging 2D semiconductors forward


The buzz about 2D materials replacing silicon appears to be premature. While 2D semiconductors have emerged as potential successors, it's not clear when or even if that will happen. As Iuliana Radu, Imec's director of quantum and exploratory computing observed, the “end” of silicon has been predicted many times before. It is not clear when 2D semiconductors will need to be ready. In fac... » read more
