PUCCA's device contributes to development of THz clock rates in nanoelectronics

PUCCA's THz-based Arrival time monitor" demonstrator/prototype was used and benchmarked in experiments at HZDR, showing that graphene can convert electronic signals with frequencies in the gigahertz range – which correspond to today’s clock rates – extremely efficiently into signals with several times higher frequency. This demonstrates that Graphene should allow clock rates up to a thousand times faster than today’s silicon-based electronics, showing it to be a promising candidate for the nanoelectronics of the future.
