Mini Transistors May Give Microprocessors a Maxi Boost

Abstract:
Tiny transistors could speed cell phones and computers in a big way, says a computer-science researcher at University of California, Irvine (UCI). "This is the first demonstration of a nanotube operating in the frequency range of microwaves -- electromagnetic waves with faster frequencies than radio waves," says American Chemical Society spokesperson Jason Gorss. For cell-phone and computer users, the discovery could mean speeds up to "1,000 times" faster.
