Improved graphene-base heterojunction transistor with different collector semiconductors for high-frequency applications

New research paper from TU Dresden & others. Abstract "A new kind of transistor device with a graphene monolayer embedded between two n-typesilicon layers is fabricated and characterized. The device is called graphene-base heterojunction transistor (GBHT). The base-voltage controls the current of the device flowing from the emitter via graphene to the collector. The transit time for e... » read more

Simplified superconducting circuits Computer chips with superconducting circuits, which means they have no electrical resistance, are said to be 50 to 100 times as energy-efficient as today’s technology. Superconducting chips are also said to have greater processing power: Superconducting circuits that use so-called Josephson junctions have been clocked at 770 gigahertz, or 500 times the spe... » read more
