Nanotube memory flashes past silicon

Although carbon nanotubes have long been believed to be perfect for making faster, smaller computer memory prototype devices have so far proved too sluggish for practical use.

Now a new design that is 100,000 times faster than previous efforts has blasted through that barrier, paving the way for nanotube flash memory to be a part of future electronic and computing devices.

yay for carbon nanotubes

"It's pretty amazing considering it has not gone through any optimisation or refining process," says Törmä. "What actually sets the 100 nanosecond limit is not the nanotube memory, but our experimental setup, so it might be able to work at even higher speeds – we just don't know yet."
