Chipmakers Test Ferroelectrics as a Route to Ultralow-Power Chips

Illustration: Emily Cooper Power Down: Chipmakers are adding a thin layer of ferroelectric material to transistors, including fin-shaped field-effect transistors (FinFETs), to reduce the gate voltage required for switching. Academics have high hopes for ferroelectric materials.
