New innovation that will lead to faster, efficient computers
Los Angeles : A new pioneering technique is set to revolutionise the next generation of computers.
Researchers are now set to produce cutting-edge, versatile microchips that will revolutionise the speed, efficiency and capability of generation next computers.
The scientists from the University of Exeter in the UK have now developed an innovative new method to engineer computer chips more easily and cheaper than conventional methods.
The discovery will help in the production of optoelectronic materials- these are devices that will produce, detect and control light thus helping in the ways of renewable energy, security and defence technologies.
The researcher Anna Baldycheva, from Exeters Centre for Graphene Science said, “This breakthrough will hopefully lead to a revolution in the development of vital new materials for computer electronics. The work provides a solid platform for the development of novel next-generation optoelectronic devices. Additionally, the materials and methods used are extremely promising for a wide range of further potential applications beyond the current devices."
Monica Craciun, Associate Professor of Nanoscience at Exeter added, “We are very excited about the potential of this breakthrough and look forward to seeing where it can take the optoelectronics industry in the future.”
The innovation will also help to develop a versatile, multi-functional technology to significantly enhance future computing capabilities.
How it works?
Well, the graphene oxide flakes are two-dimensional - consisting of length and width only and the new sophisticated light-based system will help drive the assembly of the three-dimensional chip structures.
The research was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
