A team of South Korean scientists said on Friday that they had developed a new technology that could open the way to make new devices that could replace current silicon-based semiconductors.
"Silicon generates heat, making it impossible to place ultra-thin circuits on chips but Mott metals do not generate heat while carrying out the same job of semiconductors," ETRI President Lim Joo-Hwan said.
"Semiconductors of the 20th century will eventually give way to Mott insulators," Kim Hyun-Tak told journalists.
