IBM & Others Look To Curb Energy Consumption

IBM is partnering with several leading academic and corporate research organizations across Europe to increase the energy efficiency of today’s popular gadgets and electronics and eliminate power consumption when the devices are in standby. The scientists working on Project Steeper plan to focus the initial work on TFETs (Tunnel Field Effect Transistors) and semiconducting nanowires, which let manufacturers create an abrupt transition between off and on states. The result is reduced power leakage and lower voltage necessary to operate the electrical equipment. Project Steeper will also evaluate the physical limits of using TFETs and nanowires to improve energy efficiency.
