    More Efficient Transistor Poses Threat to Silicon’s Reign, Say Engineers

    Transistors, specifically those made from silicon, are the cornerstone of modern electronics. From toasters to televisions, transistors appear in nearly everything with a circuit. They are also only getting smaller, which is a problem, especially when it comes to energy consumption, heat, and, ironically, total device size. Pack too many transistors into a device, and…
