U.S. scientists say they're turning to nanoelectronics to help solve the problem of computer heat generated by ever increasing processing speeds. Researchers at the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Science hope to lay the scientific groundwork that will solve the problem with nanoelectronics. "Lap tops are very hot now, so hot they are not 'lap' tops anymore," said Assistant Professor Avik Ghosh. "The prediction is that if we continue at our current pace of...

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 "” in this case, into your lap. Two researchers at the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Science aim to lay the scientific groundwork that will solve the problem using nanoelectronics, considered the essential science for powering the next generation of...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. "“ 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. Molecular electronics could make it possible to manufacture hardware by "growing" circuits and devices in layers that may "self-assemble," similar to the growth of structures in living organisms. Devices for a variety...
