Researchers at Bell Laboratories say they have build the world’s smallest, manufacturable transistor, four times smaller and five times faster than those used in today’s microprocessors. The achievement paves the way for powerful new integrated circuits that pack many billions of transistors onto a single silicon chip, as opposed to millions on today’s chips, the Lucent Technology Inc subsidiary claimed. Chief Technology Officer Mark Pinto said: The nanotransistor puts us way in front of the industry curve. It is what the semiconductor industry predicts will become state-of-the-art 12 years from now.
