IBM breakthrough improves carbon nanotube scaling below 10nm

Over the past few years, IBM has poured a great deal of time and effort into researching carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The existence of single-walled carbon nanotubes and their marvelous semiconductor properties occurred independently at both NEC and IBM, and Big Blue has been interested in capitalizing on that discovery for well over a decade. IBM researchers have now published a paper in which they claim to have demonstrated highly beneficial scaling capabilities in carbon nanotubes.

‘Skyscraper’ chips promise powerful computing boost

A team of researchers led by Stanford’s Mohamed M. Sabry Aly, Subhasish Mitra, and H.-S. Philip Wong want to put a “skyscraper” of computer chips in your next PC. The idea is to stack application processors, memory modules, and other components one on top of the other in “a revolutionary new high-rise architecture for computing,” according to the Stanford News Service
