New Generation Of Computers Based On Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs)

How Do You Turn a Smartphone into a Supercomputer? Carbon Nanotubes (+Video)

ScienceBlog [] | July 19, 2016

The future of supercomputing might actually be really, really small.
With support from the National Science Foundation, Stanford’s Subhasish Mitra, associate professor of electrical engineering and of computer science, and H.-S. Philip Wong, professor of electrical engineering, are working with IBM and other collaborators to develop a new generation of computers that have processors based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
