Dubai-based tech institute claims major breakthrough

Abstract:
Your mobile phones and computers will become faster, more powerful and even smaller than they are now, thanks to a technological development by the Dubai Silicon Oasis-based Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

According to experts at RIT, advances in the past 40 years in electronics were achieved by making smaller devices that allow for placing more of them on the same chip.

RIT's research in nanophotonics and nanoplasmonics has resulted in "squeezing" or confining light in almost 20nmx20nm. This is a very significant result because it will enable them to make electronic devices even smaller than the existing ones and that means more computer power with faster devices that consume less power. Hence, once this technology hits the market your computer and mobile phone will become more powerful and even smaller.

Dr Mustafa AG Abushagur, President and Dean of RIT Dubai, told Emirates Business: "Electronics has changed the way we live, communicate, entertain and do business for the past 30 or so years. This was made possible by the invention of the integrated circuit (IC), which made possible the fabrication of a large number of transistors (switches) on the same silicon chip. What we have achieved at RIT is very significant because it will enable us to reduce the size of transistors to a level that is impossible now. This means that your computers, mobile phones, PDAs and other electronic devices will become much smaller, cheaper, faster and more powerful."
