World’s First Junctionless Transistor Could Revolutionize Chip Industry

via popsci.com

Transistor junction, what’s your function now? Irish researchers at the Tyndall National Institute have fabricated the world’s first junctionless transistor, a nanotech development that could change the way semiconductors are manufactured.

The challenge over past decades has been to keep up with Moore’s Law by cramming more and more transistors into the limited real estate provided by silicon chip fabrication methods. But as future tech leans more heavily on smaller, lighter, more mobile devices with increased computing power, the imperative to slim down chip design while increasing efficiency has grown increasingly greater.
