    By on September 26, 2013 | Comments Off  Comments

    trendspotter writes “Future computers could run on lab-grown circuits that are thousands of times thinner than a human hair and operate on a fraction of the energy required to power today’s silicon-based computer chips, extending ‘Moore’s Law’ for years to come. Stanford engineers’ very basic computer device using carbon nanotube technology validates carbon nanotubes as potential successors to today’s silicon semiconductors. The achievement is reported (more…)
