Prototype chip just three atoms thick

Dec 6, 2016 United States
Researchers have demonstrated how it might be possible to mass-produce atomically thin materials and electronics. Why would this be useful? Because such thin materials would be transparent and flexible as well, in ways that would enable electronic devices that wouldn't be possible to make with silicon.

Dec 2, 2016 United States
The finding could potentially be useful for a number of different applications. It could lead to a way of making large, transparent display screens, where most light would pass straight through as if through a window, but light of specific frequencies would be scattered to produce a clear image on the screen. Or, the method could be used to make private displays that would only be visible to the person directly in front of the screen.
