Digital Memory Goes 2-D
The memory inside an iPhone or a thin laptop relies on transistors made from silicon semiconductors to store data. Computer engineers run into silicon’s physical limits as they try to shrink these devices to fit more data storage in smaller electronics. This means researchers are on the hunt for semiconductor alternatives to silicon.
Now a team of researchers has demonstrated a new type of ultrathin memory device that’s silicon-free . . .
