Kaku Explains the Future of Computing Power

Moore’s Law says that computer Power doubles every 18 months. However this “guideline” is in the process of breaking down. The limits of silicon technology are becoming apparent and new technology will need to be developed in order for computing power to progress. As theoretical physicist Michio Kaku says, computing power simply cannot continue at the exponential rate Moore’s law …

Transistor the Size of a Single Atom Made

The race to build a quantum computer just got a huge boost. A team in Australia has constructed a transistor that is the size of a single atom. And, they say it is “perfect”. The tiny electronic device, described today in a paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, uses as its active component an individual phosphorus atom patterned between …
