Zero-Energy-Consumption Magneto-Optical Storage for Next-Generation Flexible Plastic Computers
April 18, 2014
TEHRAN (FNA)- Researchers at the University of Iowa have discovered a method of converting magnetic data into optical data for free, without external electricity. This is a very big step towards flexible, cheap, throwaway plastic computers, which are gaining in popularity due to society's recent shift towards mobile computing and "quantified self" activity monitors, Extremetech reported. Plastic computers are fundamentally very similar to normal, metal computers รข- but instead of being fabricated out of wafers of silicon, plastic computers consist of organic semiconductors (polymers) that are laid down on a flexible, plastic substrate, creating organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). These OFETs don't have the same performance characteristics as silicon, but they're good enough for ultra-low-power mobile and wearable computing. (These are the same kind of organic semiconductors used in OLED displays, incidentally.)
