Scientists have created an information keeper two atoms thick

Researchers at Tel Aviv University have created the world’s smallest technology, consisting of just two atoms.

Modern devices are made up of tiny crystals containing only about a million atoms (100 atoms in height, width, and thickness). A million of these devices can be placed about a million times on one coin, with each device switching at a rate of about a million times per second.

Scientists from the University of Tel Aviv have made the storage device 10 times smaller. It differs in its size – only two atoms. This is a special “film” that consists of two layers, each of which is one atom thick. In one layer there are boron atoms, in the second – nitrogen. Super thin film stores electrical information.

The authors of the development argue that the technology will improve the performance of electrical devices in several parameters – speed, density and energy consumption.

According to his colleagues, this revolutionary technology has applications in many areas, not just computer science.
