Carbon Nanotube Transistors That'll Save Moore's Law Are Coming in 2020

Our world of amazingly tiny electronics is about to get even tinier. After a decade of research, IBM says it'll bring carbon nanotube transistors to market by 2020. The company is now readying the technology to take over from silicon transistors, and that opens up a lot of exciting doors. » 7/01/14 10:26am 7/01/14 10:26am

The First Carbon Nanotube Computer: The Hyper-Efficient Future Is Here

Coming just a year after the creation of the first carbon nanotube computer chip, scientists have just built the very first actual computer with a central processor centered entirely around carbon nanotubes. Which means the future of electronics just got tinier, more efficient, and a whole lot faster. » 9/25/13 6:20pm 9/25/13 6:20pm

The First Flexible Silicon Paper Could Revolutionize Mobile Gadgets

Imagine a smartphone you can roll up and slip into your shirt pocket. Or a tablet that can be folded like a newspaper and slipped in your back pocket. It's an idea that's been tossed around in science fiction for a years, but now it's a small step closer to reality because researchers at Sun Yat-sen University in… » 9/19/13 10:10am 9/19/13 10:10am
