Scientists are always looking at ways to improve the way the world works around us, at the University of Texas a team of physicists have discovered some of the behaviors an anatomical semiconductor can behave in, and they are predicting that they will be able to build even smaller transistors. What they discovered preceded a published study that explained the details of how a 2-dimensional semiconductor works. They found that a new material, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), is capable of giving basic binary signaling on a 1-dimensional surface. This discovery shows how much technologically advanced we have become compared to the last couple of decades.

A new method to mass produce semiconducting nano-particles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical applications has recently began picking up steam as a result of a demonstration by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. While there are countless potential applications for zinc sulfide nano-particles which is a type of quantum dot that is a semiconductor, the high cost and limited availability has been the primary obstacle to their widespread use.
