Meet the Forksheet: Imec's In-Between Transistor
The most advanced manufacturers of computer processors are in the middle of the first big change in device architecture in a decade—the shift from finFETs to nanosheets. Another 10 years should bring about another fundamental change, where nanosheet devices are stacked atop each other to form complementary FETs (CFETs), capable of cutting the size of some circuits in half. But the latter move ...

What term describes the increase in the resistance of a conductor caused by the tendency of current to concentrate at the conductor surface?
Answer: Skin Effect. The electric current flows mainly at the "skin" of the conductor, between the outer surface and a level called the skin depth.
