A good breakthrough like this will help the flash memory business for sure. It shrinks the wrap of the transistor by using nanocrystals. Interesting stuff.

Quote

The nanocrystal layer is far thinner than the silicon dioxide, Chang said. In fact, it's not even solid, and more like frost on a window. Although silicon is traditionally an electrical conductor, at these levels the quantum nature of the material takes over, and it becomes an insulator, trapping electrons and thereby retaining data.
