Israeli Researchers Announce Breakthrough That Could Allow Computers to Run 100x Faster

Researchers have created technology that will enable our computers, text messages and phone calls to run 100 times faster through terahertz microchips. Until now, the major challenges that stood in the way of creating the terahertz microchip were overheating and scalability. However, following three years of extensive research, Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) physicist Uriel Levy and his team have shown proof of concept using flash memory technology. “This discovery could help fill the ‘THz gap’ and create new and more powerful wireless devices that could transmit data at significantly higher speeds than currently possible,” said Levy, head of HU’s Nano-Opto Group….More
