Applied in WIRED: Teeny Tiny Transistors

The May 2012 issue of WIRED Magazine features one of Applied Materials’ semiconductor manufacturing systems used to manufacture cutting-edge chips found in today’s electronics. The ‘How it Works’ article illustrates how we can sculpt transistors atom-by-atom.

To fully appreciate the complexity of this process check out the cool photos available online on WIRED's web site.

You can also watch an explanation of the atomic layer deposition process discussed in the article in step 5 as well as this 12-minute tutorial on how nanoscale transistors work.
