Smallest logic circuit fabricated with single-electron transistors
Researchers produce world's first programmable nanoprocessor
Engineers and scientists collaborating at Harvard University and the MITRE Corporation have developed and demonstrated the world's first programmable nanoprocessor.
Researchers make first all-optical nanowire switch
(Phys.org)—Computers may be getting faster every year, but those advances in computer speed could be dwarfed if their 1's and 0's were represented by bursts of light, instead of electricity.
Using analog computation circuits, engineers design cells that can compute logarithms, divide and take square roots
MIT engineers have transformed bacterial cells into living calculators that can compute logarithms, divide, and take square roots, using three or fewer genetic parts. Inspired by how analog electronic circuits ...
Cell circuits remember their history: Engineers design new synthetic biology circuits that combine memory and logic
MIT engineers have created genetic circuits in bacterial cells that not only perform logic functions, but also remember the results, which are encoded in the cell's DNA and passed on for dozens of generations.
Quantum dot commands light: A solid state ultrafast logic gate on a photon
(Phys.org) —If you could peek at the inner workings of a computer processor you would see billions of transistors switching back and forth between two states. In optical communications, information from ...
Advancing graphene for post-silicon computer logic: Researchers pioneer new approach for graphene logic circuits
A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering have solved a problem that previously presented a serious hurdle for the use of graphene in electronic devices.

2-D electronics take a step forward: Team makes semiconducting films for atom-thick circuits
Scientists at Rice University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have advanced on the goal of two-dimensional electronics with a method to control the growth of uniform atomic layers of molybdenum disulfide ...
High reliability of flexible organic transistor memory looks promising for future electronics
A complex logic circuit made from bacterial genes
(Phys.org)—By force of habit we tend to assume computers are made of silicon, but there is actually no necessary connection between the machine and the material. All that an engineer needs to do to make ...
