Another Replacement Option For Transistors

A new possible replacement for silicon transistors has been experimented with. It’s called Molybdenite, which is already used as an additive to lubricants in some steel alloys. 407 more words



Once again, this is one little moment in passing. These two in their rowboats, who knows what they will turn into later on. For now their feet dangle in the air.


Carbon nanotubes move closer to competing with silicon

An international team based at Stanford has reached an important milestone in pursuit of faster computing: It can now create stable carbon nanotube transistors that are as small as the best silicon transistors. 309 more words

The Next Big Thing: Organic Thin-Flim Transistors

From many years work, Zhenan Bao,  a chemical engineering and materials science professor at Stanford University, has been able to develop new techniques to speed up the charge carrier mobility of organic transistors, which have, previously, been functioning at painfully slow speeds compared to their crystalline- or polycrystalline silicon cousins. 476 more words
