Imec Reports for the First Time Direct Growth of 2D Materials on 300mm Wafers

SAN FRANCISCO (USA), DECEMBER 3, 2018 — This week, at the 2018 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, presents a 300mm-wafer platform for MOSFET devices with 2D materials. 2D materials could provide the path towards extreme device-dimension scaling as they are atomically precise and suffer little from short channel effects. Other possible applications of 2D materials could come from using them as switches in the BEOL, which puts an upper limit on the allowed temperature budget in the integration flow.</ … Read More → "Imec Reports for the First Time Direct Growth of 2D Materials on 300mm Wafers"
