It looks like a postage-stamp sized piece of copper foil. […] Knovel Carbon nanotubes enable light to speed up to computer processes With the ever-increasing desire for faster, smaller and more powerful computers, developments in engineering information technology are in high demand. Researchers at Northeastern University have taken a step toward making speedier digital devices by using carbon nanotubes in electronic systems, according to a news release. Yung Joon Jung, an associate professor in NU’s Department of […] The Indian Express Future computer can be termed on and off using light Want your computer to go faster? Add light! Scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have developed novel devices that could usher in a new wave of highly efficient electronics, including computers, that can be turned on and off using light. Every second, your computer must process billions of computational steps to produce even the simplest outputs.
