Semiconducting two-dimensional (2D) materials have proved to be a rich playground for fundamental exploration as well as development of new technologies. One important area of research has been the production of 2D transistor structures that may in their time replace or supplement silicon transistors. In their Perspective "How good are 2D Transistors? An application-specific benchmarking study,"Â authors Hattan Abuzaid, Nicholas X. Williams, and Aaron D. Franklin draw from recently reported advances in the literature, including papers brought together in this collection, and provide an assessment of the field's development.
