A while ago I posted “Newcomer: 2d sheet of MoS2 puts Graphene transistors in a corner, watch-out Silicon!


“EPFL scientists have combined two materials with advantageous electronic properties — graphene and molybdenite — into a flash memory prototype that is very promising in terms of performance, size, flexibility and energy consumption.” 

“Combining these two materials enabled us to make great progress in miniaturization, and also using these transistors we can make flexible nanoelectronic devices,” explains Kis. The prototype stores a bit of memory, just a like a traditional cell. But according to the scientist, because molybdenite is thinner than silicon and thus more sensitive to charge, it offers great potential for more efficient data storage.
