Recently a new technology has been developed by researchers. The technology can enable computers and all optic communication devices to run 100 times faster using terahertz microchips. It was developed to create new and more powerful wireless devices which could transmit data at very high speed.
The main aim of this discovery was to fill the THz gap. It’s one of the game-changing technologies in this Hi-tech world.
Problem faced in developing Terahertz microchip
The two major problems faced during the creation of this Terahertz microchip were overheating and scaling.
Researchers worked on these challenges and developed a new optic technology which integrates the speed of light communications along with its reliability and manufacturing scalability.
Optic communications comprise of all technologies which use light and are transmitted through fiber optic cables such as the internet, text messages, the cloud, email, phone calls, data centers etc.
Optic communications in microchips are unreliable and are difficult to carry out in large amount.
Uriel Levy, the researcher from Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) in Israel along with his team developed a new integrated circuit. This circuit is developed using a Metal-Oxide-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon (MONOS) structure. It uses flash memory technology which is used in flash drives and discs on the key in microchips.
Benefits of this technology
The technology will make standard 8-16 gigahertz computers to run 100 times faster. It will enable all optic devices communications to use this terahertz chip.
Scientist-developed high power, environment-friendly, safe and long lasting LithiumSulphur Battery. Generally, the Lithium-ion batteries have a very short life span.
Kyeongjae Cho, who is a professor at the University of Texas at Dallas in the US along with research associate JeongWoon Hong developed this LithiumSulphur Battery. They discovered a technology that produced Sulphur-Carbon nanotube substance. It has more conductivity on one electrode and a nanomaterial coating on another electrode to create stability.
