IBM Research Breakthrough Paves Way for Post-Silicon Future with Carbon Nanotube Electronics

IBM today announced a major engineering breakthrough that could accelerate carbon nanotubes replacing silicon transistors to power future computing technologies. IBM scientists demonstrated a new way to shrink transistor contacts without reducing performance of carbon nanotube devices, opening a pathway to dramatically faster, smaller and more powerful computer chips beyond the capabilities of traditional semiconductors. The results will be reported in the October 2 issue of Science (DOI: 10.1126/science.aac8006).”
