A collaboration with the National Taiwan University, MIT, and TSMC has pushed the boundaries of physics to develop a major breakthrough in 1nm process technology. The unique properties of Bismuth has been used to narrow the "reduce the component channel to nanometer size" and subsequently enabled the possibilities of creating sub-1nm chip technology. Read more here and here.

This technology unveils the potential of high-performance monolayer transistors that are on par with state-of-the-art three-dimensional semiconductors, enabling further device downscaling. If the research could be commercialized in the future, it will be calling a new generation to the semiconductor industry.

Interesting but they still have a long way to go: "analysts say the breakthrough will not be ready for commercialization for about a decade"

kind of mind numbing when you stop to think about it and don't just take it as being business as usual I mean, 3 atomic layers thick? Here comes Ant Man ;)
