Major developments in the semiconductor industry are on the horizon through the use of two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides, for integrated circuits (ICs). 2D Materials for Nanoelectronics is the first comprehensive treatment of these materials and their applications in nanoelectronic devices.
Comprised of chapters authored by internationally recognised researchers, this book:
- Discusses the use of graphene for high-frequency analog circuits
- Explores logic and photonic applications of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2)
- Addresses novel 2D materials including silicene, germanene, stanene, and phosphorene
- Considers the use of 2D materials for both field-effect transistors (FETs) and logic circuits
- Provides background on the simulation of structural, electronic, and transport properties from first principles
2D Materials for Nanoelectronics presents extensive, state-of-the-art coverage of the fundamental and applied aspects of this exciting field.
