Topological Insulators

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America has reported a tremendous work by engineers from Utah University, U.S.A. The engineers are claiming that they have developed a material that is a key to speedy computing; the material that will lead computers work at a fantastic speed without getting over heated.

The technology that is put forward is a silicon semiconductor with a layer of metal deposited atop of it , the makers have entitled it as a “topological insulator”, the material behaves as a conductor and insulator simultaneously. The surface acts as a conductor to electricity while the interior wor...
