Researchers have produced the first transistors made of silicene, a material that is just one atom thick and known to be the "thinnest silicon" in the world.

The latest development offers great promise in enhancing the speeds of computers and electronics.

Scientists at the University of Texas at Austin's Cockrell School of Engineering, who created the transistors made of silicene, believe the new material has exceptional electrical properties. Until now, it has been very difficult to work with and produce silicine.
