This week scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have created two dimensional nano-electronic circuits just 1nm tall (see Nature Communications article). Apparently they were able to create two crystals ontop of one another, then infuse the top layer with sulfur. With that as a base they used standard scalable photolitographic and electron beam lithographic processing techniques to pattern electronic junctions in the crystal layer and then used a pulsed laser to burn off selective sulfur atoms (selective sulferization of the material), converting MoSe2 to MoS2. At the end of this process was a 2D electronic circuit with heterojunctions, molecularly similar to pristine MOS available today, but at much thinner (~1nm) and smaller scale (~5nm).
Just because you slip your release schedule it doesn’t mean that Moore’s Law still isn’t being proven true.
