In a recent article in Science, researchers from the University of Cambridge and the University in Vienna have found a way to fabricate a silicon electron that is nearly 100 percent made of hydrogen.
The research, reported in Science and published today, is the result of decades of research into how to build a silicon device with an atomic number that is 100 percent hydrogen.
In other words, they found a method to create a semiconductor chip with a semiconducting nucleus that has a hydrogen nucleus and a semicampable nucleus.
It’s an interesting twist on the semiconductor process.
For years, scientists have used a process known as “deuterium lithography” to build silicon chips.
But this process produces silicon chips with a very low energy density, which limits the device to a few hundred nanometers (nm).
Because of this, it is impractical to produce silicon chips of this type at scale in large amounts.
The researchers had a way around this problem by using a chemical process known in the semiconductors business as the “deoxygenation” process.
The idea is that the semicampables are chemically treated with hydrogen and oxygen to produce a hydrogen-containing compound that can be used as a catalyst.
This process is also a way of making semiconductive semiconductor, the kind of material that powers electronics.
But until now, it has been very difficult to get semiconductor devices to have this kind of a low energy performance.
In this new research, the researchers have found ways to get the hydrogen and carbon atoms to interact in a way that gives them the high energy density that makes it possible to make a silicon transistor that can run at about 100 nanometers per chip.
The team developed a method that combines these two chemical processes to create the hydrogen-helium-carbon (CH2) semiconductor.
In the process, the scientists create hydrogen in a reaction that uses oxygen.
This reaction creates an electron in the form of a positron that has two electrons, a protons and a neutrons.
The protons are the electrons that the electrons have trapped in their nucleus, and the neutrons are the protons that the neutons have not trapped.
These protons can then be turned into an electron.
The two electrons can then move through the hydrogen atom, which has been stripped of electrons.
This creates a new, free electron, which is then trapped in the hydrogen nucleus.
Because the hydrogen nuclei have been stripped, the proton can then act as a positive charge carrier, creating a charge gap in the silicon atom.
The new hydrogen-hydrogen interaction gives the silicon an extremely high energy, low-noise, and relatively high power density.
The semiconductor device is then manufactured using this new process, producing a device with a silicon-to-carbon transistor (SHT-C) of about one-tenth the energy density as the silicon-only process.
“It is a very different approach than the silicon processes that we’ve used before,” said Michael Auerbach, an associate professor in the University’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a co-author of the Science article.
“We’re very excited about this because it allows us to make an SHT-B transistor that we can produce with an almost completely hydrogen-free semiconductor.”
He added that the process was “very straightforward,” which is good news for chip manufacturers because it gives them “a lot more options than we have in the past.”
The researchers say the technique could be applied to other semiconductor materials.
“This is the first time we’ve demonstrated the use of a hydrogen atom to trap a electron,” said Jurgen Schulte, a professor in Auerich’s lab and co-director of the Stanford Center for Quantum Computing.
“Our hope is that this opens up a new way to make semiconductor transistors.
It is a big step in making SHT transistor, which currently only makes sense in very large-scale, high-performance applications.”
“We want to make the next-generation transistor of silicon,” said Thomas Wieder, an assistant professor in Schultes lab and a member of the team.
“If we can make this, we’ll be able to make transistors with higher power and more energy density.”
The work, led by Thomas Wieger, a postdoctoral fellow in Auell and lead author of the study, has been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy Office of Science and the European Research Council.
