A new publication entitled “2D materials for future heterogeneous electronics” by Max Lemme and colleagues in Nature Communications, Deji Akinwande, Cedric Huyghebaert and Christoph Stampfer is online.
Graphene and two-dimensional materials (2DM) remain an active ﬁeld of research in science and engineering over 15 years after the ﬁrst reports of 2DM. The vast amount of available data and the high performance of device demonstrators leave little doubt about the potential of 2DM for applications in electronics, photonics and sensing. So where are the integrated chips and enabled products? The authors try to answer this by summarizing the main challenges and opportunities that have thus far prevented 2DM applications.
“With this comment we wanted to reach out in first place to our colleagues outside the 2D-materials community”, says Lemme. “We wanted to highlight the potential of 2D materials to those that are less familiar with the field and, at the same time, to try to give honest answers to the question why there are no integrated chips and electronics products enabled by 2D materials yet. There are still fundamental challenges that need to be solved, but it is important that the semiconductor industry is aware of the progresses made by the 2D-community. It is time to intensify collaborations and to take full advantage of these exciting materials.”
