Nanotech breakthrough to revolutionise microchip manufacturing

from SiliconRepublic:

A team of scientists at the Tyndall National Institute have designed and fabricated the world’s first junctionless transistor that could revolutionise microchip manufacturing in the semiconductor industry.

“Minimising current leakage is one of the main challenges in today’s complex transistors. The Tyndall junctionless devices have near-ideal electrical properties and behave like the most perfect transistors. Moreover, they have the potential of operating faster and using less energy than the conventional transistors used in today’s microprocessors,” said Colinge.

[...] “These structures are easy to fabricate even on a miniature scale, which leads to the major breakthrough in potential cost reduction.”
