Researchers report on hardware Trojans that are undetectable
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 ...
Cost-saving computer chips get smaller than ever
Not so long ago, a computer filled a whole room and radio receivers were as big as washing machines. In recent decades, electronic devices have shrunk considerably in size and this trend is expected to continue, ...
Computational sprinting with wax takes heat off smartphones
Researchers figure out how to 'grow' carbon nanotubes with specific atomic structures
Move over, silicon. In a breakthrough in the quest for the next generation of computers and materials, researchers at USC have solved a longstanding challenge with carbon nanotubes: how to actually build them ...
Researchers get around bad gap problem with graphene by using negative differential resistance
Tunnel FET having a new architecture with potential for substantial improvement in performance
Researchers from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have demonstrated the operation of a synthetic electric field tunnel field-effect transistor with a new architecture.
Image-processing 1,000 times faster is goal of new $5M contract
Loosely inspired by a biological brain's approach to making sense of visual information, a University of Michigan researcher is leading a project to build alternative computer hardware that could process images and video ...
Research boosts understanding of nano-carbon in photodetectors
As modern electronic devices get ever smaller, the age of silicon transistors is going by the wayside. Tomorrow's electronics—such as photovoltaic panels, transparent conductors, capacitors, transistors ...
Zero-dimensional transistor harvests bubble energy wasted during water electrolysis
Researchers speed up transistors by embedding tunneling field-effect transistor
A steady mobile power supply for Swiss trains
Siemens is stabilizing the power grid of the Swiss railroad company Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB) by providing it with the world's first mobile units that compensate for reactive power. The overhead conductor, ...
The first electrically powered nanolasers capable of being operated at room temperature
(Phys.org) —Significant proof of the critical importance of long term basic research funding has been demonstrated with the first convincing operation of a room temperature, continuous wave nanolaser powered by electricity.
