A single molecule device for mobile phones

02 September 2014

Researchers from the Delft University of Technology, Groningen University and the FOM Foundation have designed a single molecule which can act as a useful building block in nanometer-size circuits. They found that the molecule functions as a resonant tunneling device, an essential component in mobile phones and WiFi. In conventional semiconductor technology, these devices have a complicated...Continue


Tiny graphene drum could form future quantum memory

25 August 2014

Scientists from TU Delft’s Kavli Institute of Nanoscience have demonstrated that they can detect extremely small changes in position and forces on very small drums of graphene. Graphene drums have great potential to be used as sensors in devices such as mobile phones. Using their unique mechanical properties, these drums could also act as memory chips in a quantum computer. The researchers...Continue

Long-lived qubits in silicon

14 August 2014

One of the challenges of building a future quantum computer is to develop qubits that are both scalable and robust. Researchers at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft and the University of Wisconsin have now demonstrated that a long-lived qubit can survive in silicon, the most widely used material in the modern semi-conductor industry. The research, which was partially funded by the...Continue
