Researchers at MIT have developed a new way to make smaller circuits, which could help break down barriers standing in the way of the continuation of Moore’s Law and ever-more powerful microchips. Using a self-assembling polymer layer, the new technique could make patterns smaller than 10 nm by combining several processes already widely used to make chips, which means they could be implemented at a large scale relatively easily and cheaply.
