The future of electronics is chemical

“The device platform is the missing link. We hope work like ours will accelerate this type of technology. “The electronic buildings blocks of the future will be molecules.

We can’t cram any more processing power into silicon-based computer chips. But a paper published in Nature overnight reveals how we can make electronic devices 10 times smaller, and use molecules to build electronic circuits instead. We’re reaching the limits of what we can do with conventional silicon semiconductors. In order for electronic components to continue getting smaller we need a new approach.

Moving on.

But until now, scientists haven’t been able to make a stable device platform for these molecules to sit inside which could reliably connect with the molecules, exploit their ability to respond to a current, and be easily mass-produced.

Golden times for electronic materials suppliers

Profitability is high’reaching record levels in some cases’at most chemical makers that have a large exposure to electronics. It is clearly the best of times for companies supplying the electronics industry. But it may not last.

A recent meeting of electronic materials suppliers in Seoul, South Korea, revealed that they face many challenges, even in the current boom times. R&D is becoming increasingly challenging. Product cycles are becoming shorter. Semiconductor manufacturers are reluctant to open up about their product development efforts. And to top it all off, a trade war is on the horizon.
