World’s First Ultrafast All-Optical Room Temperature Transistor

Modern digital computers have changed our lives in a variety of ways, but the technology on which they are built has still some room for improvement. As computational workloads continue to grow due to massive amounts of data and techniques like artificial intelligence, more powerful computing technologies become of paramount importance. Two of the main […]

Welding at an atomic level

As part of our IBM Research Q&A series we sat down with Shu-Jen Han to talk about carbon nanotubes and reducing resistance down to 9nm. How are silicon and carbon similar when it comes to transistors? Let’s start with carbon because it has so many different allotropes, from carbon nanotubes, graphene to diamonds. But diamonds, […]
