Birck Nanotechnology Center making strides

Abstract:
For more than three decades, microchips have grown faster and faster largely because circuits have become smaller and smaller.

But unless scientists find a way to keep the intricate electronics from overheating, that progress will hit a limit, says Baratunde Cola, a Purdue University graduate student.

In search of a solution, scientists have begun to look at carbon nanotubes, structures that are extraordinary both for their ability to conduct heat and for being thousands of times narrower than a human hair.
