Irish researchers claim semiconductor breakthrough.

In a move that could revolutionize nanoelectronics manufacturing and the semiconductor industry, scientists at the Tyndall National Institute (Cork, Ireland) have designed and fabricated what they claim is the world’s first junctionless transistor. The breakthrough is based on the deployment of a control gate around a silicon wire that measures just a few dozen atoms across.
