January 6, 2010Nanowires made of ‘strained silicon’ — silicon whose atoms have been pried slightly apart — show how to keep increases in computer power coming.
Life after silicon
December 8, 2009Researchers in MIT’s Microsystems Technology Laboratories are making the case for using exotic materials to help microchips keep improving.
