Nanowire transistors superior in size and performance

Charles Q. Choi: Transistors made with semiconductor wires just nanometers wide can exceed the performance of current state-of-the-art silicon transistors by three or four times, experts tell UPI's Nano World. Moreover, the nanowire devices show "more attractive scaling in performance as they are made smaller," said researcher Charles Lieber, a chemist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
