Researchers Shrink Transistor Gate to One Nanometer

October 13, 2016

A team of US scientists may have just breathed new life into a faltering Moore’s law and advanced the limits of microelectronic miniaturization with the fabrication of a transistor with a 1nm gate. The breakthrough portends a path beyond silicon-based transistors, which have been widely predicted to hit a wall at 5-nanometers. Read more…
