New milestone could help magnets end era of computer transistors

New work by researchers at UC Berkeley could soon transform the building blocks of modern electronics by making nanomagnetic switches a viable replacement for...

Beyond silicon: Transistors without semi-conductors

For decades, electronic devices have been getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller. It's now possible—even routine—to place millions of transistors on a single silicon...

A new class of electron interactions in quantum systems

Physicists at the University of New South Wales have observed a new kind of interaction that can arise between electrons in a single-atom silicon...

‘3-D’ transistors promise future chips, lighter laptops

Researchers from Purdue and Harvard universities have created a new type of transistor made from a material that could replace silicon and have a...

The first molybdenite microchip

After having revealed the electronic advantages of molybdenite, EPFL researchers have now taken the next definitive step. The Laboratory of Nanoscale Electronics and Structures (LANES) has made a chip, or integrated circuit, confirming that molybdenite...

New transistor for plastic electronics exhibits the best of both worlds

In the quest to develop flexible plastic electronics, one of the stumbling blocks has been creating transistors with enough stability for them to function in a variety of environments while still maintaining the current needed to power the devic...

Texas A&M professor helps develop first high-temp spin-field-effect transistor

COLLEGE STATION, Dec. 23, 2010 -- An international team of researchers featuring Texas A&M University physicist Jairo Sinova has announced a breakthrough that gives a new spin to semiconductor nanoelectronics and the world of information technolog...

Triple-mode transistors show potential

Rice University research that capitalizes on the wide-ranging capabilities of graphene could lead to circuit applications that are far more compact and versatile than what is now feasible with silicon-based technologies. Triple-mode, single-transi...

Evident Technologies Granted US Patent for Optical Switch based on Quantum...

Evident Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has been issued United States Patent Number 6,571,028 for an all optical switch or optical transistor. The optical transistor is based upon a saturable absorber or switch using the company?s EviDots semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dot technologies. The optical switch has the potential to switch at speeds up to thousands of times faster than current generation optical switching.

Engineers create world's first transparent transistor

Engineers at Oregon State University have created the world?s first transparent transistor, a see-through electronics component that could open the door to many new products. The discovery ?is a significant development in the context of transparent electronics,? the scientists said in their publication, but pointed out it?s too early to tell what applications may evolve. ?There?s no doubt it will open the door to some interesting new products and businesses, but we?re not sure what all they might be."
