2D Materials Open Door to New Electronics
2D Materials Open Door to New Electronics

Researchers believe combining molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) with other 2D materials like graphene could usher in a radically different generation of electronic devices, from light-emitting walls to glasses with built-in displays. MoS2 has graphene's super strength and conductivity, but unlike graphene, it has a bandgap, which allows the material to have on and off states. This enables it to perform digital logic. Scientists have fabricated basic electronic devices on the material, such as an inverter, and are continuing efforts to develop complex electronic circuits. MoS2 is already manufactured as a lubricant, so scaling up production for new applications shouldn't be a problem.

Chips Channeling Light

Chips Channeling Light In 10 years, will your computer transport information on bursts of electrons or photons? Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania believe the shift will ultimately be to photonic computing. To hasten this transition, they have developed an "all-optical photonic switch" using cadmium sulfide nanowires. The new technology not only overcomes electronics' processing limitations, but it does so with greater energy-efficiency.

Materials Dominating Future Electronics

Materials Dominating Future Electronics To remain competitive, electronics designers must determine what chemical elements and compounds will dominate future electronics fabrication processes. A study by IDTechEx examines the growing importance of zinc-based compounds and the roles they will play in the manufacture of capacitors, printed transistors, batteries, and sensors. Use of zinc is likely to surpass that of indium compounds because of the latter's scarcity and cost.

STMicroelectronics N Channel MOSFETs
STMicroelectronics N Channel MOSFETs
 
RS Components, Ltd.

The Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor or MOSFET is a transistor used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. A voltage on the oxide-insulated Gate electrode can induce a conducting channel between the two other contacts called Source and Drain. The channel can be of N-type or P-type.

Tunable Color Filters are Golden

Tunable Color Filters are Golden There may be a simpler way of defining color on electronic displays than the conventional thin-film-based color filters used today. Scientists have developed a compact color filter by depositing a thin perforated gold film on a layer of liquid crystal. This tunable architecture is still in the concept stage, awaiting the resolution of technical issues like optimization of contrast between on/off states and switching speed.

An Answer to the Spectrum Shortage

An Answer to the Spectrum Shortage As available wireless spectrum shrinks, call quality deteriorates. One solution is deployment of nanoelectromechanical resonators, which contain tiny beams of silicon. These devices appear to control vibration frequencies better than traditional resonators and promise to achieve higher performance with lower power consumption. Nanoresonator fabrication processes can easily be adapted to large-scale production, enabling widespread commercial use.

Forget About Flash

Forget About Flash A new class of memory chip called phase-change memory (PCM) may well replace flash technology in consumer electronics. PCM appears to outperform its competitor across the board, retaining memory when power is shut off (see video), storing and retrieving data 100x faster, and offering greater potential for miniaturization. Ultimately, the technology could enable computers to store and process vast amounts of data more efficiently than flash.

Nanotechnology Brings Richer Color

Nanotechnology Brings Richer Color Quantum dot-enhanced LCDs can now deliver the vibrant colors that were once available only on expensive display technologies based on organic light-emitting diodes. By adding a sheet of plastic containing nanoscale spheres of indium phosphide and cadmium quantum dots to their displays, manufacturers can dramatically expand the color gamut on their screens without using expensive white light sources or altering their manufacturing processes.

Electronics That Know Your Touch

Electronics That Know Your Touch Soon, with the aid of a ring containing authentication code and a signal generator, a swipe of your finger on a mobile device's touch screen could enable you to authenticate your identity, convey personal settings, or facilitate multi-user applications. The ring transmits the equivalent of a PIN code through your skin to the touch screen. The developers expect to bring the system to market within two years.
