Silicon-based electronic parts commonly contain 2D nanomaterials such as graphene that are prone to overheating due to poor heat transfer. Engineering researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago may have found a solution in the form of an experimental transistor that uses an added "encapsulating" layer to double the amount of energy transferred from the 2D material to the base of silicon.
