Expanding ‘More than Moore’ with 2D materials

‘More than Moore’ (MtM) has been a less-heralded parallel of Moore’s Law – the proposition that the number of transistors on chips will double every 18 months – for over 30 years.

Whereas Moore’s Law has always fundamentally described a scaling challenge for general compute devices, Moore than Moore focuses on developing technologies that enable far greater functional diversification of CMOS devices.


Currently these fields encompass a wide variety of technologies – but one of the key components of the MtM future will be 2D materials.

We are already seeing opportunities to showcase the potential for 2D materials in a MtM world in commercial Back End of Line (BEOL) applications – for example, using graphene to add special functions like sensing or photonic switching to semiconductor wafers.

ANL is already working with partners to deliver graphene for these BEOL applications. Our manufacturing techniques have been designed to be completely compatible with existing production lines and will support graphene ‘stacking’.

These processes will be crucial to realising the potential of 2D materials and to opening up new approaches to semiconductor design that will support the added functionalities expected in a More than Moore world.
