The material used in the dozzens of electronic goods in our households are consists of mainly the Silicon.
Now the word Silicon in going to be vanished. Weixiao Huang from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute could replace this technology with a grand new generation of transistors that will not only cut energy consumption but also work under extreme conditions.
The material he used for transistors is gallium nitride. (GaN), which has remarkable material properties and may act as a better alternative to silicon chip.
The new GaN transistor would not only reduce the power consumption but will also improve the efficiency of power electronics systems in everything from motor drives and hybrid vehicles to house hold appliances and defence equipment.
"If these new GaN transistors replaced many existing electronics systems, there would be global reduction in fossil fuel, consumption and pollution", said Huang.
