Carbon Nanotubes Light Up Silicon
To reach super-fast processing speeds, future computers may run calculations using light instead of electrons. But, currently, materials scientists haven’t found the right materials to move, store, and change light into useful wavelengths for computer applications. Now French researchers have demonstrated that a mix of silicon and carbon nanotubes might meet those needs (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn204924n).
Silicon, already . . .
