CONTROLLED ATOMIC CHAOS: BREAKING THROUGH THE DISORDER ROADBLOCK FOR THE NEXT GENERATION LOW POWER TRANSISTORS

Grant number: DP120101825 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015

Completed

Abstract

Computer chip miniaturisation has reached a critical barrier: performance and power consumption are now seriously hampered by atomic level disorder in the materials. The project aims to understand and resolve the disorder problem and establish Australia's place in the international roadmap with disruptive improvement of device speed and power consumption.
