When we compare the microprocessors that are used on laptops and smartphones to the insanely fast core processors of desktops, the desktops would always sweep the competition. Apart from being somewhat more rapidly in comparison with microprocessors, the core processors can handle multi-tasking and heavily loaded applications that we run on our desktops.
But there is an emerging technology that will give a promising outcome of nearing the gap among micro and core processors. In a report of communications breakthrough, a team of scientists in the University of Pittsburgh claimed to a successful generation of a new frequency comb, which entails dividing a single color of light into a series of evenly spaced spectral lines for a variety of uses, that spans more than 100 terahertz (THz, or 1 trillion cycles per second) bandwidth (ZDNet).
Terahertz has never been reached and applied to any processors that we have on the market, and if this will be applied to future laptops and smartphones the new technology can make them 1000x faster. This can certainly complete the mobile solutions that we want to have on our devices.
Emerging technology: introducing the new 3D printer
3D scans can now be printed in a matter of seconds using a new technique, known as two-photon lithography, which was developed by researchers at the Vienna University of Technology.
Professor Jurgen Stampfl, a professor from the Institute of Materials Science and Technology at the TU Vienna said the technique until now, used to be quite slow. With … READ MORE ...
