Polariton Logic

In 1965, Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors on a chip would double every year to reach 65 000 by 1975. When that remarkable prediction proved true, he revised the doubling rate to every two years, and that became known as Moore's Law. Almost 50 years after Moore's seminal prediction, traditional chip architectures are reaching their technological, practical and economical limits. The EU-funded POLLOC project is exploiting an all-optical approach that takes us beyond current transistor technology. By replacing electrons with photons, optical transistors and all-optical logic gates are envisaged that could bypass the fundamental limitations of the current electronic transistors. Moreover these novel devices offer processing at the speed of light to achieve energy-efficient massive processing required for tomorrow’s high-efficiency and high-power computing platforms.

PoLLoC was at the E-MRS Fall meeting 2023

Members of PoLLoC were numerous to share their results during Symposium S of the E-MRS Fall meeting. At this occasion, the jury decided to award Simon Boehme with a well-deserved best oral prize!

Rhombic Superlattices of cesium lead bromide quantum dots

The achieved high size monodispersity and shape-uniformity of CsPbBr3 quantum dots (QD) enables thei self-assembly in an exceptional long-range-ordered superlattice with an unusual rhombic packing. Read more on ACS Nano 2023, 17, 2089.
