New Quantum Materials for High-Speed Communications

A new quantum material has been developed which can be used in extremely powerful electronic devices of the future to replace silicon in semiconductors.

Researchers from University of Geneva, Salerno, Utrecht and Delft have designed new quantum materials that can replace silicon in semiconductors for high-speed signal processing. The dynamics of electronics can be controlled by curving the fabric of space in which they evolve. The telecommunications of the future will require new, extremely powerful electronic devices. They must be capable of processing electromagnetic signals at unprecedented speeds, in the picosecond range, ie. one thousandth ...
