Using ferroelectric materials and graphene to control surface plasmons, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology report that memory chips could have denser components and use less energy than before. "The system would provide a new way to construct interconnected devices that use light waves, such as fiber-optic cables and photonic chips, with electronic wires and devices," MIT researchers said.
Surface plasmons could lead to more energy-efficient memories
