Tiny technologies create huge energy savings

Abstract:
University College London (UCL) has discovered a world first in the manufacturing of microchips. The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering has used nanotechnology techniques to successfully induce the oxidation of silicon at room temperatures using light from ultraviolet (UV) excimer lamps, instead of high-temperature, energy-hungry furnaces.
