First silicene transistors for super-fast computers developed

Researchers have created the first transistors out of silicene, the world's thinnest silicon material, paving the way for faster and more efficient computers and other electronics.

New material promises higher-performance electronics

Material engineers including an Indian-origin scientist from University of Wisconsin-Madison have reported the highest-performing carbon nanotube transistors ever demonstrated - a significant leap toward creating flexible electronics with improved battery life.

New technology to make smartphone batteries last longer
New technology to make smartphone batteries last longer

A new technology to control energy consumption inside transistors could pave the way for a smartphone that does not die after a few hours of heavy use, says a study.

New graphene-type material created

Scientists have created a new material, related to graphene, which has the potential to improve transistors used in electronic devices.

New 2-D material better than graphene?

Scientists have found a two-dimensional, self-assembling material whose properties are very similar to graphene, but with some distinct advantages, and it may be used to produce solar cells or transistors.

Now, transistors without semiconductors

A team of scientists have figured out how to make virtual carpets of boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT), which happen to be insulators and thus highly resistant to electrical charge.

Soon nanotechnology to make computers faster

Scientists are looking at the possibility of replacing silicon transistors in computers with carbon nanotubes.
