Hope for the future......

1/6/09


Had Crypto exam today. A simple paper but GOD knows how I am gonna fare. Not much hope of gaining high marks , that's for sure. While going through the news, I came across Graphene. The newest kid in the Chip fabrication process. It is reportedly 300 times stronger than steel with fastest conductivity for electrons. Seems like guys at MIT found this out accidently. For you and me, graphene is what we leave on paper when we use pencils for drawing and writing. A 2-D stucture that is the basis for Nanotubes, buckyballs and other carbon stuffs. A simple substitution for the silicon in chips with this leads to a processor with speeds of min. 26 GHz, compared to the fastest one being 8 GHz at present.
There are certain obstacles such as low availability and insulation problems that are hampering development. But I am really looking forward to the future where a 500 GHz processor becomes common. Hoping for the best...
