A precise, chemical-free method for etching nanoscale features on silicon wafers has now been developed.

Cell membrane inspires new ultrathin electronic film

Thu, 2018-04-26 19:59
Researchers have developed a new method to build large areas of semiconductive material that is just two molecules thick and a total of 4.4 nanometers tall. The films function as thin film transistors, and have potential future applications in flexible electronics or chemical detectors. These thin film transistors are the first example of semiconductive single molecular bilayers created with liquid solution processing, a standard manufacturing process that minimizes costs.

Emerging memory devices used to develop electronic circuits for cybersecurity applications

Thu, 2018-04-26 01:50
While we embrace the way the Internet of Things already is making our lives more streamlined and convenient, the cybersecurity risk posed by millions of wirelessly connected gadgets, devices and appliances remains a huge concern. Even single, targeted attacks can result in major damage; when cybercriminals control and manipulate several nodes in a network, the potential for destruction increases.
