Researchers create the world’s first photonic circuit for quantum computers

Researchers create the world’s first photonic circuit for quantum computers

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Achieving quantum entanglement in quantum computers is difficult because photons move at such high speeds, but this problem has now been solved, moving the technology closer to reality.   Interested in the future and want to experience even more?! eXplore More. The foundational element of Quantum...

China solves Boltzmann Tyranny problem to create 3nm transistors

China solves Boltzmann Tyranny problem to create 3nm transistors

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As computers are embedded into everything, from wearables and clothing, to even human cells, they’ve got to get smaller – and they are.   Interested in the future and want to experience even more?! eXplore More. As transistors get ever smaller, with 7nm transistors now going...

Revolutionary Bio-Compatible transistors will let AI’s interface with your brain

Revolutionary Bio-Compatible transistors will let AI’s interface with your brain

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Neural interfaces that let us communicate with each other and the machines around us, as well as stream our thoughts to TV, will revolutionise humanity, but we need bio-compatible hardware.   It’s a fact that silicon transistors and the brain don’t mix, and while you...

DARPA splashes $1.5bn to re-invent the way electronics are designed and made

DARPA splashes $1.5bn to re-invent the way electronics are designed and made

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF There is a concern that the lack of focus on developing new, advanced hardware will put US business and its military at a serious disadvantage in the future so DARPA is quadrupling its investments.   There is now question that the electronics industry has been...

Researchers built a breakthrough quantum transistor using just a single atom

Researchers built a breakthrough quantum transistor using just a single atom

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As transistors get smaller companies are going to be able to create computers that are orders of magnitude more powerful and energy efficient than today’s platforms.   Over the past couple of years we’ve seen the development of a wide range of transistors that push...

World’s first liquid transistor could usher in a new era of liquid computers

World’s first liquid transistor could usher in a new era of liquid computers

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Moore’s Law is slowing and as we look to move computing to the edge of the network we need new forms of computing platforms, this is the first step in building the worlds first liquid computer.   For decades now transistors, those tiny electrical switches...

Researchers use just 14 atoms to build the world’s first 0.5nm transistor

Researchers use just 14 atoms to build the world’s first 0.5nm transistor

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As silicon based transistors, the bed rock of today’s modern computing platforms, near their theoretical limits we will see the birth of several new types of computing platforms that will dominate the decades to come.   We are always being told that Moore’s Law is...

IBM unveils a new 5nm chip process, but 1nm looms on the horizon

IBM unveils a new 5nm chip process, but 1nm looms on the horizon

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As physical chip design starts to near its limits it is getting harder for companies to keep up with Moore’s Law but IBM’s latest announcement gives it a new shot in the arm – until that is Quantum Computing arrives.   IBM, in partnership with...

Berkeley Lab team pushes the limits to build a 1nm transistor

Berkeley Lab team pushes the limits to build a 1nm transistor

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Berkeley Lab breakthrough might help to reboot Moores Law.   Transistor size is an important part of improving the price-performance of today’s computer systems – the smaller your transistors, the more you can fit on a chip and the faster and more efficient your processor can be. Accomplishing...

Worlds smallest molecular transistor reboots Moore’s Law

Worlds smallest molecular transistor reboots Moore’s Law

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Scientists have demonstrated a new 0.167nm transistor.   It’s no secret that companies like Intel have been finding it increasingly difficult and, perhaps more pertinently, costly to keep pace with the expectations of Moore’s Law so it came as no surprise when in early 2016 a consortium...
