Faster and efficient computers?

#research #technology #computers #UK #microfluidics

Researchers form the University of Exeter in the UK have developed an innovative new method to engineer computer chips more easily and cheaper than conventional methods.

Optoelectronic materials, devices that produce, detect and control light, that form an integral part of the next generation of renewable energy, security and defense technologies could benefit a great deal from this discovery.

The research team used microfluidics technology, which uses a series of minuscule channels in order to control the flow and direction of tiny amounts of fluid. The fluid contains graphene oxide flakes, that are mixed together in the channels, to construct the chips.
