Looking back and forward: A decadelong quest for a transformative transistor

Transistors have been miniaturized for the past 50 years, but we've reached the point where they can't continue to be scaled any further. In Applied Physics Letters, researchers review negative capacitance field-effect transistors, a new device concept that suggests traditional transistors can be made much more efficient by simply adding a thin layer of ferroelectric material. If it works, the same chip could compute far more, yet require less frequent charging of its battery.
