In the ongoing search for smaller, faster and more efficient computers, new research from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden suggests graphene and carbon nanotubes could be used to create these super small, super fast computers and smartphones. Both made of carbon, the nanotubes and graphene have specific and unique properties, making them ideal for computing. Graphene, for example, is made up of carbon layers which are only atom-thick. Nanotubes are comprised in a similar way, and...

Traditional silicon-based integrated circuits are found in many applications, from large data servers to cars to cell phones. Their widespread integration is due in part to the semiconductor industry´s ability to continue to deliver reliable and scalable performance for decades. However, while silicon-based circuits continue to shrink in size in the relentless pursuit of Moore´s Law – the prediction that the number of transistors that can fit on an integrated circuit...
