Third-Order Nanotechnology, Inc., Announced a Technology Breakthrough That Could Replace the Silicon Transistor

WILMINGTON, DE | Posted on February 1st, 2007

Today's computer systems perform calculations through the flow of electricity across imbedded circuit boards. The current speed of this electric flow limits the speed at which a computer can operate. For several years, scientists have envisioned the day that light instead of electricity will be the energy that makes the computer function, allowing computers to theoretically perform calculations at the speed of light. Third-Order's new materials could one day bring this vision to fruition.

Third-Order Nanotechnologies, Inc. invents and fabricates nano-engineered materials for high-speed computer and telecommunication systems. Although the materials that Third-Order engineers are not something the average Jane or Joe is ever likely to purchase, they are very likely something one would use daily without ever knowing it--whenever one goes online or simply boots-up a home computer.

The new material could lay the foundation for a theoretical device known as the all-optical transistor. Today billions of electrical transistors make up the computer on which you are most likely reading this article. Some scientists expect that this fundamental building-block may be replaced by an optical (or light) based transistor which could make computers smaller, faster and less expensive.

According to scientists in this field, the key to making an effective all-optical transistor is a high-stability material. Since light will constantly flow in and out of this new generation of transistors, it's essential that the material itself does not slowly bleach out over time. This is the secret to Third-Order's material innovation. Some experts in the field have predicted that Third-Order's materials could withstand optical powers that are a quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000x) times stronger than an average laser-pointer, well in excess of what is needed for an all-optical transistor.
