    IBM scientists explore post-silicon semiconductor materials

    Date added: 20 Oct 2014

    IBM and GLOBALFOUNDRIES signed a definitive agreement under which GLOBALFOUNDRIES will acquire IBM's global commercial semiconductor technology business, while IBM sharpens its focus on semiconductor and material science research, development capabilities and leadership in high-value systems. IBM scientists, including researcher Jerry Chow (pictured), are exploring post-silicon semiconductor materials, such as carbon nanoelectronics, silicon photonics, new memory technologies, and architectures to meet the emerging demands of cloud, Big Data and secure transaction optimized systems.
