New Material Promises Faster Computer Chips

Scientists from University of Texas said this week that they had created what was previously possible only in theory: a one-atom-thick form of silicon, the material essential for production of transistors, the basic elements of all computer chips. The exotic material, called silicene, has all the electrical properties needed for production of much smaller and faster semiconductors. One of the critical properties of today’s computer chips is the distance electrons must travel from one...
