A new design has enabled researchers to make the best performing transistor yet from two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide. They say the results show the material has the right stuff to compete with silicon in the future—though many technological challenges still stand in its way (Nano Lett. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.6b02713).

Atomically thin 2-D materials like MoS2, graphene, and phosphorene have unique electronic properties that make them . . .
