Three-atom-thick transistor achieved by Intel

from the Intel-makes-science-fiction-into-reality dept.
From an Intel press release: "Intel Corporation researchers have achieved a significant breakthrough…The transistors feature structures just 30 nanometers in size and three atomic layers thick…Scientists expect such powerful microprocessors to allow applications popular in science-fiction stories — such as instantaneous, real-time voice translation — to become an everyday reality…Also significant is that these experimental transistors, while featuring capabilities that are generations beyond the most advanced technologies used in manufacturing today, were built using the same physical structure as in today's computer chips." The coverage puts a nanotech spin on the story.
