Biodegradable Transistors made from Human Body !!!

A team of researchers including Ph.D. students Elad Mentovich and Netta Hendler of TAU’s Department of Chemistry and The Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, with supervisor Dr. Shachar Richter and in collaboration with Prof. Michael Gozin and his Ph.D. student Bogdan Belgorodsky had developed a new generation of  nano-sized technology that are both flexible and biodegradable to replace silicon in the field of semiconductor electronics. Researchers have integrated cutting edge techniques from different fields of science to create protein based...

More Energy Efficient Transistors through Quantum Tunneling

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame and Pennsylvania State University had announced that they had developed Tunneling Field Effect Transistor (TFET), which takes the advantage of a peculiar behaviour of electrons at quantum level. We know that transistors are the basic building block of electronic devices that power this digital world. The growth of computing power over the last 40 years had made possible by increasing the number of transistors that integrated in single silicon chip. Now we have more...

A NEW ERA OF HYBRID VEHICLES !!!!!!!!!!!! (GO GREEN)

   In this era of increasing petroleum costs, the arrival of hybrid vehicles is inevitable. Energy consumption is rising day to day resulting  in the decrease of natural resources. The fuel consumption rate all over the world in going up. So we have to find alternate sources of energy for using vehicles. Also the threats to the nature by the increasing number of fossil fuel vehicles is increasing. thus all these circumstances lead us to the world wide application...

WILL PHOTONICS REPLACE ELECTRONICS???

PHOTONICS  A TECHNOLOGY OF TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After doing a wonderful job in all fields, Electronics seems to have  reached certain limits. Here is where the  importance of PHOTONICS is to be analysed. The  capability of a photon to carry information signals are being widely researched. It has become successful up to a certain limit in the communication field after the introduction of Fibre Optics. But  the capability of a photon in computing and control is still a question mark in front of the scientists. A photon is...

OXIDE THIN FILMS REPLACING PN JUNCTIONS.

North Carolina State University have developed the first functional oxide thin films that can be used efficiently in electronics, opening the door to an array of new high-power devices and smart sensors. This is the first time that researchers have been able to produce positively charged (p-type) conduction and negatively charged (n-type) conduction in a single oxide material, launching a new era in oxide electronics. To make functional electronic devices, you need materials with a "p-n junction," where the positively...

Single Atom Transistor

Australian and American physicists had developed a Single Atom Transistor, composed of an atom of phosphorous-31 isotope. They had demonstrated a working transistor composed of a single atom, which is about 100 times smaller than the 22 nanometer cutting edge transistor fabricated by Intel. This will be big strike towards the next generation computing. The researchers's uses a combination of Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and Hydrogen-resist Lithography to place single phosphorus dopant atom on the base of Silicon with a accuracy of of one...

SELF-HEALING ELECTRONICS

Electronic circuits are becoming more complex and denser. Damage to a single element can result in malfunctioning of the entire electronic system, this can range from a simple conducting wire to complex devices. The problem is more dominant when damages occur inside the ICs. When a tiny circuit inside an IC breaks, the whole chip or even the whole device is unusable. Engineers of the University of Illinois has successfully developed a self-healing system capable of reparing a cracked circuit...

SPINTRONICS BASED DEVICES TO REPLACE TRANSISTOR TECHNOLOGY IN NEAR FUTURE

One of the basic element in every electronic device is the transistor. Decades old technology. Finally the Scientists of Cambridge are on their way to an alternative. Spintronics which relies on the magnetic moment or the spin of an electron could revolutionise the enitre electronics field.Much of its benefit goes to computing since it can create ultra speed pcs.Due to its high speed, density and low power consumption its more efficent than the traditional technologies. Untill now reasearches were more...
