Nanotube Computer

There has been an interesting report from Stanford University.  The researchers have developed a working computer that is based on carbon nanotube electronics.  This is the first time that a working computer, albeit primitive by today’s standards, has been demonstrated using wafer-type manufacturing.  The article in the Wall Street Journal is available at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304795804579097201829598522.html.

As significant developments occur in nanotechnology, we post links for further exploration of the information.

About Walt

I have been involved in various aspects of nanotechnology since the late 1970s. My interest in promoting nano-safety began in 2006 and produced a white paper in 2007 explaining the four pillars of nano-safety. I am a technology futurist and is currently focused on nanoelectronics, single digit nanomaterials, and 3D printing at the nanoscale. My experience includes three startups, two of which I founded, 13 years at SEMATECH, where I was a Senior Fellow of the technical staff when I left, and 12 years at General Electric with nine of them on corporate staff. I have a Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, an MBA from James Madison University, and a B.S. in Physics from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
