The new organic semiconductor will create ultra-fast flexible processors

Researchers have produced material that can become the basis for next-generation flexible electronics.

A team of scientists from Australian National University was able to grow an organic semiconductor with a thickness of one carbon atom with unique properties that allow you to create ultrafast electronic processors and microcircuits from it.

While conventional devices are powered by electricity, the new material makes it possible to use light and individual photons instead, which travel much faster. Moreover, it has high strength, flexibility, which allows you to give it any shape.

The semiconductor is made only of carbon and hydrogen, so devices from it can be biodegradable or easily processed without harm to the environment.

Although the scientists themselves say that in the near future we should not expect the appearance of electronics working in the light, but their study takes us one step closer to this technology. Recall that last year, engineers have already created the world’s first optical transistor with a frequency of 2 THz.
