How ‘Valleytronics’ Could Help Keep Moore’s Law Alive

To sustain the growth of the power of microchips and keep Moore’s Law going, semiconductor engineers are exploring the path of “valleytronics”. As Gordon Moore predicted, the number of transistors in chips have doubled every...
New Nanomaterials Process Will Lower Manufacturing Cost of Thin-film Devices

New Nanomaterials IPL Process Would Revolutionize Thin-film Manufacturing

Researchers developed a new method of processing nanomaterials that could lower the cost of manufacturing thin-film devices. Engineers from the Rutgers University-New Brunswick and Oregon State University have reportedly developed a new process that will...
