Strain Enables New Applications of 2D Materials

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Superconductors’ never-ending flow of electrical current could provide new options for energy storage and superefficient electrical transmission and generation. But the signature zero electrical resistance of superconductors is reached only below a certain critical temperature and is very expensive to achieve. Physicists in Serbia believe they’ve found a way to manipulate superthin, waferlike monolayers of superconductors, thus changing the material’s properties to create new artificial materials for future devices. They discuss their work in the Journal of Applied Physics.

Ultra-Clean Fabrication Platform Produces Nearly Ideal 2D Transistors

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineering researchers report that they have demonstrated a nearly ideal transistor made from a 2D material stack—with only a two-atom-thick semiconducting layer—by developing a completely clean and damage-free fabrication process. Their method shows vastly improved performance compared to 2D semiconductors fabricated with a conventional process, and could provide a scalable platform for creating ultra-clean devices in the future.
