One of the pieces in the kit had a schematic illustration printed on it, a diagrammatic representation of an electronic transistor: a "sandwich" consisting of a semiconductor central piece surrounded on two sides by two symmetrical conductive structures.
According to the researchers, the biocomputer would require less than one percent of the energy consumed by an electronic transistor, making them much more sustainable than electronic supercomputers, which often require their own power plant to function.
Dr David Powell, from RSPE, suggested that the remarkable properties of this artificial material might first be put to use in the budding photonics industry and thin slices of these materials could replace bulky collections of lenses and mirrors, so this miniaturisation could lead to the creation of more compact opto-electronic devices, such as a light-based version of the electronic transistor.
A team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that previously developed some of the world's fastest electronic transistors has modified its record-setting technology to create a practical device that's both an electronic transistor and an infrared laser, a photonic component.
Optical transistors have the potential to exceed the speed of electronic transistors, while consuming less power and emitting less heat.
In the present work, the recent applications of graphene in electronic transistors were reviewed.
