Professor Symons said: “can actually the electronic installation have is small? We are confirming its limit. The Australia's first computer went on the market in 1949, it occupied the entire room, you only could use the hand to take the spare part. Today, you may place the computer on the palm, many spare part's diameters even are only a hair diameter 1/1000.”
“now we already had demonstrated in the world first with the silicon material the electronic installation which the systematic characteristic makes under the atomic scale division. Not only this has the special significance to the computer user, to all Australian great importance.power tool's
The past for 50 years, the electronic installation miniaturization has been actuates the global economic productivity swift growth the key aspect.
Our research indicated that this advancement still might continue.” US and Austria unite the research team the essential target are with the silicon atom manufacture quantum computer, the Australian have the unique human resources in this domain, simultaneously is in the world leading position. This new electronic installation indicated that realized the equipment the manufacture and the survey technology already started under the atomic scale division to approach.
At present, the commercial crystal valve (transistor gate, this equipment may is acted as transistor electric current amplifier or switch) the length approximately be extremely 40 nanometers (1 nanometer is equal to 1/1000000000 meters), the quantum computer technology center's research team is developing the length is only 0.4 nanometers equipment.
Professor Symons pointed out that 20 years ago, Tang · Aigler (Don Eigler) and Erhard · Shiweiceer (Erhard Schweizer) in IBM Corporation's Ahl stirrup Research center, has composed IBM Corporation's marking with the xenon atom, thisWas at that time in the world the smallest marking. Two people use a scanning tunneling microscope, puts in the nickel surface 35 xenon atoms, put together “IBM” three letters.
Aigler and Shiweiceer research paper publishesNature in the magazine, they wrote: “the equipment miniaturization's basic principle is obvious”.shell receives
Two people also many times give the warning in the paper, and was summarizing finally said: “the atomic scale division's logic circuit and other equipment's prospect is away from us to be somewhat remote.”Professor Symons said: “at that time looked that resembled the remote matter to turn the reality now. We use this kind of microscope not only to be possible to observe or the skilled operation atom, but can also use 7 atomic manufacture atom precision the equipment, makes it to work in the real environment.”
Intel Corporation on 4th announced that has developed may put into the large scale production the three-dimensional structure transistor, uses the new transistor's chip which reduces while the energy consumption, its performance obtains the large promotion hopefully.
Intel had demonstrated at the same day also the code number is “the ivy bridge” 22 nanometers microprocessors, and plan complete the volume production this microprocessor's preparatory work by the end of this year. Intel said that it will be the first section uses the new three dimensional transistor's quantity to produce the chip. With present in products and so on computer obtains the widespread application two-dimensional transistor to compare, the three dimensional transistor technically has place of the breakthrough.
Intel introduced that its researchers have invented “three grids” in 2002 the structure three dimensional transistor. After are many afterward year research and development, this new transistor enters finally may the large scale production stage. This company explained that through optimized with the skyscraper to the airborne development uses the urban finite space to be similar,hotel interior design because the three dimensional transistor were more than a vertical structure the two-dimensional transistor, enabled in the chip the transistor to seal closely.
Intel provides the data demonstrated that uses the two-dimensional transistor with in this company's 32 nanometers chips to compare, the three dimensional transistor the performance may enhance 37% under the low voltage, completes the similar work the energy consumption to be possible to reduce half. Intel's experts said that these merits mean the new transistor is suitable to use in the small hand-hold installment, further enhances the existing installment hopefully the intellectualized degree, and causes to design and develops other possibly to install brand-new into.
