Researchers Unravel Mechanisms that Control Cell Size

University of California San Diego

A multidisciplinary team has provided new insight into underlying mechanisms controlling the precise size of cells. The researchers found that “the adder,” a function that guides cells to grow by a fixed size from birth to division, is controlled by specific proteins that accumulate to a threshold.

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.
