World Smallest Transistors Ever Made

In 2006, a team of Korean researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the National Nano Feb Center codeveloped a 3 nmtransistor, the world's smallest nanoelectronic device based on conventional technology, called a fin field-effect transistor (FinFET). It is the smallest transistor.. Continue reading

A first: Stanford engineers build computer using carbon nanotube technology

A team of Stanford engineers has built a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, a semiconductor material that has the potential to launch a new generation of electronic devices that run faster, while using less energy, than those made from silicon chips.. Continue reading

'Accelerator on a chip' demonstrated

In an advance that could dramatically shrink particle accelerators for science and medicine, researchers used a laser to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional technology in a nanostructured glass chip smaller than a grain of rice.. Continue reading

Growing Thin Films of Germanium

Researchers have developed a new technique to produce thin films of germanium crystals -- key components for next-generation electronic devices such as advanced large-scale integrated circuits and flexible electronics, which are required for gadgets that move or bend... Continue reading

Scientists Demonstrate World's Fastest Graphene Transistor; Holds Promise for Improving Performance of Transistors

In a just-published paper in the magazine Science, IBM researchers demonstrated a radio-frequency graphene transistor with the highest cut-off frequency achieved so far for any graphene device -- 100 billion cycles/second (100 GigaHertz)... Continue reading
