    Researchers create new material and one-atom-thick transistors

    Scientist have made a breakthrough and have created the world’s first transistors made out of silicene. If the technology can be developed further, this could be a game changer for future computers.

    You’d be forgiven if you’ve never heard of silicene before, especially in the context of transistors and computer processors. That’s because just a few years ago, this material was wholly theoretical and its properties and structure were largely unknown.
    Silicene is the slim version of silicon, basically being made up of the same atoms but in just a single one atom thick layer. Silicene is to silicon what graphene is to graphite, or carbon. And just like graphene, this new 2-D material has electrical properties which make it a prime candidate for use in computers and electronics. New computer chips made with silicene would be smaller than ever, provide amazing performance and be far more energy efficient than anything we have today on the market.
