Many of Santa Clara’s biggest names are taking a serious look at nanotechnology and that includes Intel. William Goddard and his team at California Institute of Technology are working with the chip developer on the design of carbon nanotube interconnects as well as trying to find the best metal substrate for graphene.
“Our approach is to simulate the different nanostructures using first principles and then to build the ones that look like they’ll work,” he told a packed audience at this morning’s softnano session.
Goddard’s modelling methods have also paved the way for an array of molecular-sized red green blue “colour wheels” that can rotate to render a colour image. Goddard thinks that this could be a smart way of realizing ultra thin, full-colour displays.
