Quantum-tunneling technique promises chips that won't overheat

06/25/2013 | TechEye.net

Researchers at Michigan Technological University have employed room-temperature quantum tunneling to move electrons through boron nitride nanotubes. Semiconductor devices made with this technology would need less power than current transistors require, while also not generating waste heat or leaking electrical current, according to the research team.
