Only two atoms thick, the new technology, enabling the storage of information in the thinnest unit known to science, is expected to improve future electronic devices in terms of density, speed, and efficiency.

Researchers from Tel Aviv University have engineered the world’s tiniest technology, with a thickness of only two atoms.

According to the researchers, the new technology proposes a way for storing electric information in the thinnest unit known to science, in one of the most stable and inert materials in nature.

The allowed quantum-mechanical electron tunneling through the atomically thin film may boost the information reading process much beyond current technologies.
