Researchers at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a nanodevice that operates more than 10 times faster than today’s fastest transistors, and about 100 times faster than personal computers.
The team at the Power and Wide-band-gap Electronics Research Laboratory (POWERlab), led by Elison Matioli, built a nanodevice that enables the generation of extremely high-power signals in just a few picoseconds, producing high-power THz waves. The EPFL researchers say they are hoping to mitigate the costs and materials demand of traditional THz waves.
The researchers say the high-power picosecond operation of these devices may help with some advanced medical treatment techniques such as…READ MORE
