Carbon nanotube transistors outperform silicon for first time ever

Posted by in categories: computing, mobile phones, nanotechnology

In a world first, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison materials engineers have created carbon nanotube transistors that outperform state-of-the-art silicon transistors.

A big milestone for nanotechnology, this breakthrough could enable longer battery life, faster wireless communication and faster processing speeds for devices like smartphones and laptops.

The researchers reported their advance in a paper published Sept. 2, 2016, in the journal Science Advances. Read the open access paper here:
