Chementator: Improved transistor    

By Gerald Ondrey |

Researchers at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University (Sweden; edlinks.chemengonline.com/7373-545) have used nanotechnology to develop a transistor that is said to be 50 times more energy efficient that conventional models. The prototype transistor is made of indium arsenide, where the electrons move more easily compared to silicon, thus reducing the problem of overheating inherent to Si-based devices. The new transistor has the potential to reduce energy consumption in mobile phones and computers, as well as for communication in frequencies that are too high for today’s technology, says Lars-Erik Wernersson, professor of solid state physics.
