    Using negative capacitance in the isolaton layer MOSFET gates 30 % less voltage is needed
    for switching the MOSFETs

    The researchers found that a superlattice structure composed of three atomic layers of zirconium oxide
    sandwiched between two single atomic layers of hafnium oxide, totaling less than two nanometers in thickness,
    provided the best negative capacitance effect.
