New Nanoscale Process Created by UCSB Scientists Will Help Computers Run Faster and More Efficiently


September 25, 2008

pores formed by new technology Smaller. Faster. More efficient. These are the qualities that drive science and industry to create new nanoscale structures that will help to speed up computers. Scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have made a major contribution to this field by designing a new nanotechnology that will ultimately help make computers smaller, faster, and more efficient. The new process is described in today's Science Express, the online version of the journal Science. Full Story
