Germanium comes home to Purdue for semiconductor milestone

West Lafayette IN (SPX) Dec 11, 2014

A laboratory at Purdue University provided a critical part of the world’s first transistor in 1947 – the purified germanium semiconductor – and now researchers here are on the forefront of a new germanium milestone. The team has created the first modern germanium circuit – a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) device – using germanium as the semiconductor instead of silicon.
