New nanotechnology enables electrical signal transmission to break through existing bottlenecks

Scientists at the University of California Irvine have announced breakthroughs in the use of nanotechnology. This breakthrough allows electrical signals to travel at speeds up to 10 GHz without the current bottleneck.


Peter Burke, an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science who participated in the research, said that nanotube devices can be used in high-speed electronic devices, computers, wireless networks or telephone systems in the world, and people will benefit from this technology.

Peter Burke revealed that previous studies have shown that nanotube transistors can operate at very high frequencies, but the interface between transistors uses slow copper to become a speed bottleneck. This study shows that nanotubes can transmit electrical signals from one transistor to one. Another transistor that eliminates bottlenecks.
