'Ballistic' nanotransistors?

  • Computer designers at the University of Rochester (UR) say they've invented the next generation of transistors. In a short article, ZDNet UK writes that these ballistic deflection transistors (BDT) could lead to terahertz-speed computers. We are far away from real chips manufactured with this technique, but it's interesting to note that this "ballistic design bounces individual electrons off deflectors as if playing a game of atomic billiards."
