Computing at the speed of light: Team takes big step toward much faster computers
University of Utah engineers have taken a step forward in creating the next generation of computers and mobile devices capable of speeds millions of times faster than current machines.
Scientists use DNA to assemble a transistor from graphene
(Phys.org) —Graphene is a sheet of carbon atoms arrayed in a honeycomb pattern, just a single atom thick. It could be a better semiconductor than silicon – if we could fashion it into ribbons 20 to 50 ...
Future phones and laptops could have speakers made of carbon nanotubes
Teleportation with engineered quantum systems
A team of University of Queensland physicists has transmitted an atom from one location to another inside an electronic chip.
Quantum teleportation on a chip
The core circuits of quantum teleportation, which generate and detect quantum entanglement, have been successfully integrated into a photonic chip by an international team of scientists from the universities ...
Silicon Valley marks 50 years of Moore's Law
Computers were the size of refrigerators when an engineer named Gordon Moore laid the foundations of Silicon Valley with a vision that became known as "Moore's Law."
Researchers combine logic, memory to build a 'high-rise' chip
For decades, the mantra of electronics has been smaller, faster, cheaper. Today, Stanford engineers add a fourth word - taller.
Researchers create first neural-network chip built just with memristors
An unlikely competitor for diamond as the best thermal conductor
An unlikely material, cubic boron arsenide, could deliver an extraordinarily high thermal conductivity – on par with the industry standard set by costly diamond – researchers report in the current issue of the journal ...
A bright future for LEDs
A single wafer-level LED chip that produces more than 150 Watts of light output has been made in work form China. This level of output from a single chip makes applications for LEDs in high power lighting ...
