U.S. scientists say they're turning to nanoelectronics to help solve the problem of computer heat generated by ever increasing processing speeds.
If you've balanced a laptop computer on your lap lately, you probably noticed a burning sensation. That's because ever-increasing processing speeds are creating more and more heat, which has to go somewhere â€” in this case, into your lap.
Engineers at Purdue University have created a nanotech simulation tool that shows how current flows between silicon atoms and individual molecules to help researchers design "molecular electronic" devices for future computers and advanced sensors.
