Breakthrough reported in fabricating nanochips

(NYU Tandon School of Engineering) A breakthrough in fabricating atom-thin processors could have far-reaching impacts on nanoscale chip production and in labs across the globe where scientists are exploring 2D materials for ever-smaller and -faster semiconductors. Researchers reported that lithography using a probe heated above 100 degrees Celsius outperformed standard electron beam lithography for fabricating metal electrodes for promising 2D semiconductor materials such as molybdenum disulfide.
