Danish researchers invent 2nm components


“The most advanced semiconductors today are manufactured using a 22nm process – so in reality our components are 10 fold smaller,” says researcher Kasper Noergaard from Nano-Science Center at University of Copenhagen to SemiAccurate.

The components are manufactured using a substrate with a layer of gold. On top this substrate the diodes are placed and the entire process is finished by covering the wafer with a thin sheet of graphene that forms the conductivity between the components.

So far the researchers have created a diode.  “Our aim is to create a transistor, but we wanted to publish out results and therefore we decided to make the announcement after the implementation if a diode,” says Kasper Noergaard.

Now all we need is a way to mass produce these semiconductors and have Moore’s law continue beyond traditional semiconductor limits.S|A
