Gallium Nitride Boosts Transistor Power
Cornell University researchers have reported significant progress in making a new generation of transistors based on gallium nitride, a material that promises to deliver up to a hundred times as much power at microwave frequencies as the semiconductors now used in cellular telephones, military radar and satellite transmitters. (1998-08-19)

Cornell In Consortium For Faster Circuitry
Cornell University will be part of a national consortium of seven universities chosen to take part in an ambitious national semiconductor research effort, the Focus Center Research Program, funded by federal, state and industry dollars. The venture's aim is to develop a new generation of more powerful computer chips by devising new methods to connect microchip components. (1998-08-13)

Sapphire Semiconductors? Gem-Like Material May Promise Faster, Smaller, More Reliable Circuits, UD Prof Says
Alumina-better known as sapphire or ruby in its mineral form- may promise faster, smaller, more reliable computer circuits, thanks to University of Delaware technology described in the July 1998 Journal of Electronic Materials, tentatively scheduled for mailing July 13. The UD technique produces extremely thin, alumina films offering an electrical storage capacity three times greater than silicon dioxide. (1998-07-13)

World's Fastest Electrometer
Yale scientists have developed the world's most sensitive electrometer, a transistor so sensitive it can count individual electrons passing through a circuit. The detector could be useful in testing miniaturized electronic devices and as a highly sensitive light detector in powerful new microscopes and telescopes. The device is about 1,000 times faster than the best electrometer on record and 1 million times faster than other single electron transistors. (1998-06-05)

Hot Research At Sandia May Make Producing Electricity From Geothermal Energy More Cost Competitive
Sandia researchers may make electricity derived from geothermal energy more economically feasible with new electronic instrument systems that can operate at more than 100 degrees hotter than current instrumentation. (1998-04-30)

Not Science Fiction Any More: Sandia Scientists Develop Quantum Mechanical Transistor
Scientists at Sandia National Laboratories have developed a transistor based on quantum mechanical principles. The device is much faster than any commecial transistor in use today and is created with readily available manufacturing techniques. . (1998-02-11)

Shuttle Experiment To Shed Light On Future Of Electronics Miniaturization
After 20 years of exploring the esoteric nature of liquid helium when it is cooled to ultra-low temperatures in zero gravity, physicist John Lipa suddenly finds that his work could have important ramifications for the miniaturization in the microelectronics industry. His latest experiment - scheduled to launch in the space shuttle Columbia on Nov. 19 - is called the Confined Helium Experiment (CHeX). (1997-11-20)

5,400-Connection Microprocessors By Year 2009
A $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to the Electronic Packaging Program at Cornell University will support the design and construction of a PICT (precision interconnect cluster tool) capable of attaching integrated circuits with at least 10 times more connections than today's most powerful chips. (1997-10-15)

Yale Scientists Measure Current Across Single Organic Molecule
Researchers at Yale have succeeded for the first time in measuring an electric current flowing through a single organic molecule sandwiched between metal electrodes. The feat could pave the way for a radically new generation of transistors so small that a beaker full would contain more transistors than exist in the world today. (1997-10-09)

Faster, Cheaper Computer Revolution May End Soon, Say UF Researchers
The era of smaller, faster and cheaper computers may soon end because microscopic silicon chips are getting so small that eventually they will contain too few atoms to work, warn two University of Florida researchers. (1997-09-23)

New Way To Make Chips Could Lead To More Powerful Computers
A novel method of making computer chips could produce personal computers that would be a thousand times more powerful than today's desktops, says a University of Illinois scientist. (1997-09-05)

Shrinking Information Storage To The Molecular Level
The first experimental demonstration of a transistorless approach to computing, called quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA), is reported by University of Notre Dame researchers in the Aug. 15 issue of Science. In this experiment, a single electron was used for the first time to control the position of another electron. (1997-08-14)

Combining Two Types Of Transistors Results In Improved Circuits
Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a method of combining two types of transistors in high- performance devices with a variety of applications, including wireless products and optical communications. (1997-07-15)

New Thin-Film Transistor Can Enhance Laptop Computer Displays
A new type of thin-film transistor developed at the University of Illinois could improve the resolution of flat- panel, liquid-crystal displays used in laptop computers. The transistor contains a novel (1997-06-03)

Everyday Technology Underlies First DNA Computer Logic Gates
A pair of scientists at the University of Rochester has built some of the first DNA computer 'hardware' ever: logic gates made of DNA. Most surprising about Animesh Ray and Mitsu Ogihara's recent work is that they made the DNA logic gates using only themost commonplace biological laboratory techniques, such as DNA ligation and gel electrophoresis.
