Nanoribbons carved into high-performance transistors

Extremely thin strips of phosphorus may help engineers to fabricate nanoscale transistors with atomically perfect structures.


​Demand for ever-smaller computer chips is driving research into unconventional materials, such as graphene that is only a single atom high. A new study predicts that another two-dimensional (2D) material, termed phosphorene, has the potential to find wide use in nanoelectronics due to its capacity to combine several transistor components into a single structure.
