Australian scientists discover new nano-material that can speed up electronics

Scientists at the CSIRO and RMIT University have discovered a new two-dimensional nano-material that could pave the way for the creation of even smaller computing devices that offer big improvements in processing speed.

Dr Serge Zhuiykov, a scientist at the CSIRO, said the team had created layers of material as thin as 10 nanometres, significantly thinner than the current electronic industry benchmark of between 20 and 30 nanometres for silicon-based chips. Dr Zhuiykov said the material –created using graphene – provides a unique structure where electrons can be transferred at high speeds with minimal ‘scattering’. This material was manipulated to convert it into a semiconductor and nanoscale transistors were then created using molybdenum oxide.
