Optical computers light up the horizon

Since their invention, computers have become faster and faster, as a result of our ability to increase the number of transistors on a processor chip.

Light helps the transistor laser switch faster

Light and electrons interact in a complex dance within fiber optic devices. A new study by University of Illinois engineers found that in the transistor laser, a device for next-generation high-speed computing, the light ...

2-D nitrogenated crystals new potential rival for graphene

Researchers in South Korea have, for the first time, developed a simple technique to produce a two-dimensional nitrogen-containing crystal that has the capacity to be a potential rival to graphene and silicon as semi-conductor ...
