Stanford researchers pursue ultrathin, low-power semiconductors. @PowerElecTech:

Semiconductor R&D is a continuing process that looks for new, improved technologies and devices. This process follows along the same lines described by the American Chemical Society (ACS) for three main activities: Basic research ˗ projects that do not have a specific commercial objective, but evolve into applied research as they uncover new materials or solutions to problems. Applied research ˗ projects that aim to discover new knowledge related to a specific commercial objective. Development ˗ work that draws on existing research results and is directed specifically toward the creation of new and/or improved products and processes. Basic research is where it all starts: new ideas, fundamental theories, unanswered questions, and investigation into something that doesn’t quite make sense.
