The research team, headed by Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma, the Lynn H. Matthias Professor in Engineering and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor in electrical and computer engineering, and research scientist Jung-Hun Seo, designed a transistor that works at a record 38 gigahertz, even though their simulations highlight that the transistor is also capable of working at an overwhelming record of 110 gigahertz.
The high performance transistor uses less energy and works more efficiently with its novel, three-dimensional current-flow pattern. The researchers’ method allows the transistor to cut narrower trenches than that performed by the standard fabrication processes. The method also helps semiconductor manufacturers to squeeze an increasing number of transistors onto a single electronic device. Read more here. Visit Skyspring Nanomaterials here.
