Radical nanowires: Has silicon met its match?

from University of Buffalo via Futurity

Scientists working to identify materials that could one day replace silicon in faster computers may have found one. A research team reports they have synthesized nanowires made from vanadium oxide and lead. And these nanowires perform a rare trick: when exposed to an applied voltage near room temperature, the wires transform from insulators that are resistant to carrying electricity to metals that more readily conduct electricity. more
