Nanotechnology & applications in electronics

  1. 1. Applications of Nanotechnology in Electronics… Mayuri jadhav Apurva kathepuri
  2. 2. Electronics and Computers Nanotechnology Makes:  Smaller Transistors  Smaller Memory  Smaller Circuitry
  3. 3. Nanotechnology in Computer Processing Moore’s Law
  4. 4. Moore’s Law describes a trend of technology. It states that the number of transistors that can be put on a single chip will double every two years.
  5. 5. Transistors Instead of making transistor components and assembling them on a board, Nano scale transistors are grown together on a silicon wafer. They look much different from the traditional transistors Nano Transistor
  6. 6. Because of nanotechnology, the speed of computers has increased while the price of computing has decreased
  7. 7. Nanotechnology in Memory and Storage
  8. 8. This is a 2 gigabyte hard drive. It weighs about 70 pounds. It was first used in the 1980s. Its cost at that time ranged from $80,000 to $140,000
  9. 9. 2 GB in 1980s $80,000 2 GB in 1990s $200 2 GB in 2010 $5
  10. 10. Nanotechnology in Displays
  11. 11. Nanotubes are small enough that they cannot be seen, so they can be great conductors to be used as transparent contacts These layers contain transparent electrodes
  12. 12. Carbon nanotubes on a glass or plastic sheet allow manufacturers to make clear conductive panels for displays that are extremely thin.
  13. 13. Nanotechnology in Circuitry
  14. 14. To see the circuitry, researchers use an electron microscope or an atomic force microscope. This image shows different levels of a circuit
  15. 15. conclusion At this movement the main limitation is the high cost of nanotechnology. Also concerns with the environmental effects.
