Nanomechanical switch recharges computer chip technology

Abstract:
Most scientists and engineers look at a computer chip and see a marvel of modern technology. Pritiraj Mohanty sees profound limitations.

Thanks to the vision of Mohanty, a CAS assistant professor of physics and a faculty member at the Photonics Center, and graduate students Alexei Gaidarzhy, Robert Badzey, and Guiti Zolfagharkhani, computers soon could store much more data than todayís machines. The researchers recently designed a nanomechanical memory cell that is smaller and can operate at far greater physical densities than the memory cells in todayís magneto-electronic computer chips, dramatically improving a computerís ability to store, retrieve, and process data.
