As the amount of data produced by humanity grows exponentially, with it comes the demand for smaller, faster and cheaper electronic devices to process these data. So the semiconductor industry is continuously searching for ways to scale devices below 3 nm, an important barrier for the current Si-based devices. Below that scale, Si-devices often suffer from poor performance. A certain group of 2D materials has gained attention for their excellent electrical properties and thickness of less than 1 nm, enabling device performances similar to Si-based devices and a great potential for scaling. This work expands the library of 2D materials that can be grown using thin-film technology and helps us get one step closer to smaller, more cost-effective electronic devices.
