Nanoscale Vacuums Speed Semiconductors

Abstract:
When you want to make the point of how far electronics and computer technology have come in the last sixty years, you likely refer to the old computers that used vacuum tubes for circuitry.

So, it's a bit counterintuitive to see the latest research that suggests vacuums may be the way forward to help semiconductor electronics keep pace with Moore's law. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have developed a method for generating a vacuum within a semiconductor device to transport electrons more efficiently through it.
