Single atomic layer semiconductors get within reach
Semiconductors, as thin as a single layer of atoms, are no longer a dream of the future: Researchers in Germany, the United States and Poland have together developed a two-dimensional material that could revolutionize electronics. Its semiconducting properties make this material appear suited for advanced applications even much better than graphene.

The researcher had the idea to replace single carbon atoms by boron and nitrogen – such that they formed a two-dimensional lattice with the properties of a semiconductor. In a team with scientists from the University of Lincoln-Nebraska, he was able to reach that goal. Research partners from the University of Krakow (Poland), the State University of New York and the Tufts University in Massachusetts also contributed to this success.
