By depositing atoms on a wafer coated in a "mask" (top left), MIT engineers can corral the atoms in the mask's individual pockets (center middle), and encourage the atoms to grow into perfect, 2D, single-crystalline layers (bottom right).

Struggling to overcome the inevitable shortcomings of miniaturizing digital technologies due to the inherent limits of silicon, Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have potentially reinstated Moore's Law with the synthesis of 2D materials on silicon wafers.

True to Moore's Law, the number of transistors on a microchip has doubled every year since its origination in 1965; however,...
