Are Nano Computers On The Horizon ?

Recent research carried out in the United States and Australia suggest that the silicon chip may be on the way out , due to developments derived from Molybdenum, a compound that has been around in its pure form for over a hundred years

PRLog - Feb. 5, 2013 - Scientists in Australia and also the USA recently revealed that an important break through may be just in the near future, In computer technology,for several years silicon has been the substance that has been the basis of  computer chips.nonetheless there is an interesting new advancement that may potentially lead to the birth of Nano computer systems.

Transistors composed of a structure associated with oxide crystals, which they have employed to create nano size transistors, might take the place of silicon as the cornerstone of chips which are typically essential in electronic design..

The chemical substance molybdenum oxide, could possibly be the component favoured as corporations focus on progressively scaled-down, and also quicker.much more powerful computer systems.

An associate lecturer of at RMIT Faculty Victoria in  Australia, revealed the element could theoretically allow for  the advancement of palm-sized devices, whilst producing the potency of desktop computers.

"In the event that we're able to load up more transistors within a smaller area, and we're capable of running them at a reduced heat range ,we might then end up with a computer the size of a cell phone." He was quoted as saying

Despite the fact that statements of this type are a normal event in computer technology, Dr Kalantar-Zadeh explained personal computing development had been jeopardised due to the fact silicon had arrived at the limits of its capability.

He expressed it was no longer plausible to create smaller sized transistors applying silicon, It was furthermore becoming out of the question to cool silicon sufficiently to produce more effective microchips, given that numerous minute transistors operating simultaneously created far too much energy.

In the previous a few years laptop function hadn't progressed substantially, especially the prior 12 months, because the overall potential with silicon chips is undoubtedly nearing its optimum capability.

Doctor Kalantar-zadeh defined technology development had plateaued, and therefor.Some thing revolutionary must be implemented, to additionally build speedier scaled-down ,potent computer equipment he stated.

"If we just are not able to develop transistors smaller than this, we are encumbered using what we have got. If we had been caught a this particular standard of engineering ten years ago consumers around the world probably would not have cell phones."

A scientist at the Australian CSRIO revealed the most up-to-date nano-material was created of layered materials comparable to graphite sections inside a lead pencil

"Inside these kinds of ranges, electrons are able to generate right through at remarkable velocities as well as minimal dispersion," he expressed.He also continued to predict molybdenum oxide, when put into practice by the technology sectors, could possibly be the norm in electronic products in approximately 5 to 10 years time.
