Nanowire Transistors Faster than Silicon

· with 0 comments

Nanowires are made with regular crystal structures and uniform electronic properties - a level of predictability is essential for manufacturing high-performance electronics. Researchers at Harvard University have shown that nanowire transistors can be at least...
