The Nanotube Computer Has Arrived
The world’s first computer built with carbon nanotubes has been unveiled by researchers at Stanford University (Nature 2013, DOI: 10.1038/nature12502). The machine—albeit very limited in function—is a major step toward energy-efficient alternatives to the silicon-based electronic components that dominate the computing and electronics landscape today.
Computer technology has long-followed Moore’s law, the prediction that every two years electronics firms will be able to double the number of transistors—the semiconducting building blocks . . .
