Flexible electronics can benefit from ultra-thin materials of atomic thickness, which are used for manufacturing microprocessors. Recent breakthroughs have been made in this area by researchers at the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, and the EU's flagship graphene project. These researchers are expected promote the development of intelligent hardware and applications such as Internet of Things.
"Two-dimensional Material" is a term used to describe a material which can be moved freely (planar movement) in only two dimensions on a non-nanoscale (between 1 and 100 nm), for example graphene or transition metal compounds, such as tungsten dielenide, molybdenum sulfide.
The two-dimensional materials are usually composed of several layers of molecules. Our previous focus was on graphene. Two-dimensional materials include some graphene-like materials, like transition metal disulfide compound. The materials are soft, small, light, and of low weight. But they also have excellent semiconductor properties, making them ideal for flexible electronic gadgets. .
The microprocessor is at the heart of modern electronics. Microprocessors play a key role in all electronics products.
A microprocessor, which is a core part of the microcomputer, consists of a large number of integrated circuits. These can be used to read and execute commands, as well as exchange data between external memory and logic elements.
Thomas Mueller of Vienna's Technical University has been studying two-dimensional material. He believes that materials with two dimensions are the best candidates for manufacturing microprocessors in the future. Molybdenum diulfide, which is composed of sulfur and molybdenum, only has three atoms of thickness, making it a two dimensional material.
In order to achieve this, he worked with the research team of Technical University of Vienna as well the researchers of EU Graphene Flagship Project in creating a transistor consisting of two-dimensional "molybdenum Disulfide", MoS2. A new type of microprocessor is formed by 115 such transistors. Currently, this type of microprocessor performs one-bit logical operations. It is expected that it will expand in the near future to multi-bit operations.
