Tunable electrical behavior not previously realized in conventional devices As electronics approach the atomic scale, researchers are increasingly successful at developing atomically thin, virtually two-dimensional materials that could usher in the next generation of computing. Integrating these materials to create necessary circuits, however, has remained a challenge. Northwestern University researchers have now taken a significant step toward fabricating complex nanoscale electronics....
