Transcript of Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology in

Moore's law
Gordon moore's theory is that the transistor amount on a chip doubles every year. The definition of the law have changed over the year and is now defined "The amount of transistors on a chip doubles every 18 months." In fact,there is signs that the law is slowing down and will collapse in
approximately 10 years or so.

What does Processors has do with nanotechnology?
In the late 80's it were alot of experiments with building processors with nanotechnology, and in the nineties the products built with nanotechnology reached the public market. The technology is still being in good use in a variety of products you use daily, like your smartphones. The nanotechnology have made the parts more adjustable in size so we went from this to this with X times higher speed and with good size compared to yesterday's processors.
What is nanotechnology?
First of all the word Nano means one billionth, which is the same as 1/1000000000. When measuring with Nano we use nanometer, which is also the same as one billionth but of one meter.

1 nanometer equals 1/100000000 meters

Nanotechnology is when you're working with particles from the size of 1nm to 100nm, on the same level as atoms (size of atoms = 0.2nm).
By working with nanotechnology you're trying to customize the molecules to fit together to create things in the size of just a few atoms.
Transistor count chart
of using nanotechnology and shrinking the size of transistors in processors?
Less power needed for the transistors to switch.
Increased performance, an identical processor built in 22nm will perform better than one built in 32nm. More transistors will also fit on a newer processor, which increases the performance even more.
Cooler Processors.
Lowers the cost to produce the processors, less material necessary.
environment and health impact
The production of processors releases carbon dioxide, which
affects the environment. But a finished processor isn't harmful for the environment expect that it clutters if not recycled.A processor contains mostly silicon and a very small amount gold on the contacts.
