  • Molecular Electronic Devices
    2,641 words
    Organic Molecules Challenge Silicon's Reign as King of Semiconductors There is a revolution fomenting in the semiconductor industry. It may take 30 years or more to reach perfection, but when it does the advance may be so great that today's computers will be little more than calculators compared to what will come after. The revolution is called molecular electronics, and its goal is to depose silicon as king of the computer chip and put carbon in its place. The perpetrators are a few clever chem...
  • Electronics And Technology New Electronic Devices
    527 words
    Electronics The invention of the microprocessor in 1971 was a huge milestone that eventually changed everyone's everyday lives. This invention enabled the world to own a personal computer in their home as well as their office. People were able to work more efficiently and progressively with these new electronic devices. Electronics today provides the world with an infinite amount of information at a much faster speed than that information would ever have been available before. The American publi...
  • New Electronic Devices And Circuits
    465 words
    Both economic and general physics considerations indicate that the rapid improvements we have come to expect in silicon integrated circuits will saturate around the year 2010. However, fundamental physical laws indicate that it should be possible to compute with a power efficiency that is at least one billion times better than present silicon electronics. [1] The most straightforward way currently known to achieve such efficiencies are to fabricate circuits very much smaller than they are at pre...
  • Today's Electronic Devices
    543 words
    ATHENS, Ohio -- Today's computers and other technological gizmos operate on electronic charges, but researchers predict that a new generation of smaller, faster, more efficient devices could be developed based on another scientific concept -- electronic "spin". The problem, however, is that researchers have found it challenging to control or predict spin - which keeps practical applications out of reach. But physicists in Europe, California and at Ohio University now have found a way to manipula...
  • First Single Molecule Transistor
    1,940 words
    We live in the technology age. Nearly everyone in America has a computer or at least access to one. How big are the computers you are used to? Most are about 7' by 17' by 17'. That's a lot of space. These cumbersome units will soon be replaced by something smaller. Much smaller, we " re talking about computers based on lone molecules. As far off as this sounds, scientists are already making significant into researching the feasibility of this. Our present technology is composed of solid-state mi...
  • Transistors Microprocessors And Its Impact On Society
    2,176 words
    A transistor is a special device that is used in almost every electronic device that has a circuit. A transistor is a solid state device that replaced the thermionic device, which was used for the purposes of communication. However, the development of transistors allowed for many more developments and inventions that have helped shape the way we live and the world that we live in. The following essay will focus on what exactly the transistor is and how it was developed. It will explore the diffe...
