German researchers have built a quantum transistor using just a single atom

IMG_8418

A team of researchers at Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed a quantum transistor using just a single atom, and capable of operating at room temperature.

The device points toward major new frontiers in computing power and efficiency. Transistors, which control the flow of electronic signals, are the basis of modern electronics. The steady reduction in the size and energy consumption of transistors has been the fundamental driver of advances in computing power for more than half a century.

A 2D material that generates electricity from movement could someday be woven into our clothes

Model Release-YES

The 2D material is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2).

A transparent, flexible material only as thick as an atom could one day power our electronics, according to a paper published to be published in Nature. And the best part is it could generate electricity from walking, running and other everyday motions.
