Nanowire the New Technology for Future

Updated on October 9, 2011

Technology is developing in a fast way which ensures that the functions are performed very fast with accuracy. The latest innovation in the technology is the development of the thinnest nanowire. Nanowires are supposed to be used in the near future which will help computers performance to super fast. A 'photonic chip' used in the nanowire will help to perform functions in computing and electronics using the light.

The technology was developed by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and the Australian National University. Nanowire is considered to be thousand times thinner than a human hair and is prepared in a special type of glass known as chalcogenide. The photonic chip in the nanowire will help to transfer the information through the networks at the speed of light. It will help in faster communication systems and will make the download or upload time less compared to the present network.

Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) comprising six universities is the main entity that coordinated the development of photonic chip. This technology will erase the present mismatch between the routers and fibre optic cables used in internet connections. Presently a router work at much slower speeds than the optic cables and thus slows the entire system down.

The future requires the communication systems to be faster to process the day to day operations very smoothly. Nanowires will power ultra-fast telecom networks in the future.

The non-linear property of the Chalcogenide made this technology into success. Non-linearity means the optical density of a particle will change according to the intensity of applied light. Chalcogenide can handle the passage of light without breaking down.

Be prepared to accept the new technology that will deliver web pages and downloads in nanoseconds time.
