Tel Aviv University researchers have drawn attention with the world’s thinnest technology they have designed, only two atoms thick. they pulled. The technology opens the door to a new procedure for storing electrical information using the thinnest unit known to science. Accordingly, the data will be stored in one of the most stable and inert devices known in nature.
The technology uses quantum-mechanical electron tunneling, which can elevate the process of reading information to performance levels beyond existing technologies as it runs through atomically thin cinema. State-of-the-art devices used today have tiny crystals of 100 atoms in height, width and thickness, containing about 1 million atoms. 1 million such devices can be packed about 1 million times in a coin field, and each device can switch about 1 million times per second.
In this project, the researchers were able to reduce the thickness of crystal devices to two atoms, paving the way for information to travel at higher speeds. The material used in the study was two-dimensional, with single-atom-thick layers of boron and nitrogen arranged in a repetitive hexagonal structure. The team succeeded in breaking the symmetry of the crystal by artificially bringing the two layers together into one. Researcher Ben Shalom says the group can stack layers in parallel configuration without artificially rotating them. Hypothetically, this could place exactly one kind of atoms in perfect overlap, despite the strong repulsive forces in the middle. Shalom says Crystal prefers to shift one layer more slowly than another, so that only half of the atoms in the layer overlap.
The researchers expected the same behavior from multilayer crystals with true symmetry properties and labeled the concept of mid-layer slippage “Slide-Tronics.” The group hopes that miniaturization and translation by scroll will refine the electronic devices in use today and allow other new techniques for controlling information in future devices.
