Electronics, Electronics, electronics article A super-fast, ultra thin and ultra-high-resolution electron capture system is the key technology that could revolutionise electronic chips, and could transform the way the world is storing, retrieving and using data.
The key to this approach is the creation of an electron storage device.
The electronic system could then be captured and stored in a chip, which could then act as a supercomputer.
The potential for this technology is vast.
In the UK, researchers from the University of Cambridge and the University at Buffalo are developing a superconducting electronic system, called a quantum supercapacitor, that could store and release electrons.
The device is designed to be ultra-small, and it can be fabricated on a nanometer scale, making it possible to make it to the size of a grain of rice.
It’s also made of a superstrong material, which means it can survive temperatures up to 1,000°C.
The team, led by PhD student Jie Yang, says the device could be used in electronics devices for devices that are up to 100 times smaller than standard transistors, but still have enough power to drive current.
The quantum super capacitor could also be used to store superconductors, which is very similar to how superconductivity works.
The researchers are also working on a supercapular material, called gallium nitride, that they believe could be the perfect material for the quantum super-capacitors.
They are also developing new types of electronic devices, called optoelectronic devices, that are using quantum super capacitors.
In a recent paper, the team explains how they are making the supercapricitors using a quantum-mode laser and a combination of laser light and electron beams.
The group has also been working on quantum transistors using an electrochemical process called superconductor fabrication.
These devices have many different uses, including sensing and energy storage, but they also provide an alternative to silicon transistors in a number of applications.
The latest work is an example of what the researchers call quantum transcapacitance, a phenomenon that allows electrons to be trapped in a material at extremely high temperatures, allowing them to operate in a superhigh-voltage mode.
The energy released is then used to charge a capacitor, which can then act like a superconduction.
In theory, it’s possible to control the rate at which electrons are released and release them to create a quantum mechanical effect.
The technology could also allow supercapacs to be used as superconductive supercapitals, which have many advantages over silicon transcapacs.
The new work could lead to a whole new class of supercapable devices.
In fact, a team from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has proposed a similar quantum super capacitor that could act like the current generation supercap in a microprocessor.
These supercapicitors could also make use of the electron beam, making them much more efficient than silicon transcaps.
If they work as expected, the researchers say they could have a potential range of applications, from superconducted devices to transistors and photovoltaics.
