Ferroelectrics, Negative Capacitance, and the Future of Transistors

Ferroelectrics, Negative Capacitance and the Future of Transistors

The IT industry pumps out 2 percent of global CO 2 emissions, a figure on par with aviation. That equates to around 7 percent of the world's electricity, a figure predicted to double by 2030. A solution to IT's hefty carbon footprint could be found in Negative Capacitance Field-Effect Transistors (NC-FETs), which have the potential to revolutionize the microprocessor industry.
