The researchers, based at the University of Texas at Austin said the breakthrough promises “dramatically faster, smaller and more efficient computer chips”.

The silicon is called silicene and the team demonstrated that it could be made into transistors, the basic building block of a central processing unit (CPU) in a computer. <a href="http://channeleye.co.uk/silicon-chips-to-be-one-atom-thin/" class="read_more">more&#187;</a><div class="feedflare">
