New Patterning Technique Enables Smaller Electronics

Rice University scientists have developed a new lithographic patterning method that allows fabrication of smaller 2D electronics. The process makes patterns for circuitry that includes a conductor and an insulator at a feature resolution of about 100 nanometers wide in atom-thick layers. The researchers, who used graphene and hexagonal boron nitride in their work, say their technique might eventually let designers make 2D devices with circuits only 20 or 30 nanometers wide. Scientists from Vanderbilt University, the US Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and electronics manufacturer Agilent Technologies contributed to the project, which the researchers published in Nature Nanotechnology.
