Scientists use DNA to shape graphene into the transistor of the future

See on Scoop.itTracking the Future

Increasingly, quantum computers are predicted to be the next great leap in computational power — but in reality they are more likely to be the nextnext great leap. Right now we have to tailor experimental quantum chips to their particular mathematical process of interest, literally build them to solve a specific problem; today’s silicon solutions will reach the peak of their potential long before we can go buy Intel or AMD’s new plug-and-play quantum processor. We need something that can continue to provide increasing computational power in the time between silicon’s peak and quantum’s grand beginning. One possible solution is graphene, a material that could dramatically increase computer performance without overturning the foundations of computer engineering.
