New research shows that carbon nanotube transistors are twice as efficient as silicon varities

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have shown for the first time that transistors fashioned out of carbon nanotubes are actually twice as efficient as regular silicon varieties. This comes after decades of research regarding how carbon nanotubes can be used to design the next generation of computers. Speaking about the breakthrough, recently published in…


New research takes us closer to transparent LED displays, by fixing defects in monolayer semiconductors

Scientists have long regarded atomically-thin semiconductors as the future of electronics. Despite their infinitesimal thickness, such materials could pave the way for high-tech electronic devices, including transparent LED displays, miniature transistors and more efficient photovoltaic cells. However, currently available¬†technologies are known to produce monolayer semiconductors that are riddled with flaws. As part of a recent…
