DNA is the blueprint for life. Could it also become the template for making a new generation of computer chips based not on silicon, but on an experimental material known as graphene? That’s the theory behind a process that Stanford chemical engineering professor Zhenan Bao reveals in Nature Communications.
Physicists have created a working transistor using only a single phosphorus atom placed precisely in a silicon crystal.
Materials scientists at the University of Washington have built a transistor that uses protons rather than electrons, in a breakthrough that could allow devices to communicate directly with living things.
Harvard University scientists and the Mitre Corporation have demonstrated the world's first programmable nanoprocessor.
IBM has developed the world's fastest graphene transistor, which outperforms traditional silicon.
