New chemistry-based data storage would blow Moore’s Law out of the water
A new computing technique could lead to transistors that fit on single molecules — an advance that might open up new possibilities in data storage. Research in ASU’s Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors directed by Fulton Schools Professor Nongjian “NJ” Tao is focusing on the combination of physical and chemical properties at the molecular scale. The work shows promise as a platform for progress in ultra-miniaturization of electronic devices. That could mean storage equipment and the general processing of information operating through tiny high-speed, high-power molecular switches.
