0 Просмотры
Have you ever thought if you could enhance your brain? Deblina () develops electronic devices which are hundred thousand times smaller than the thickness of your hair and consume minuscule amount of power. These devices can boost the performance of your computers and in future, could even augment your brain!

Topics: nanoelectronics, low power transistor, nanoscale MOSFET, tunneling, tunnel FET, field effect transistor, nanotechnology, 2D materials, graphene, transition metal dichalcogenide, brain, understanding brain, neuroprosthetics, brain implant, electronic brain, digital brain, artificial brain, synthetic brain, brain augmentation, upgrade brain, brain enhancement, human intelligence, neuroscience

Deblina Sarkar is a neuro-technologist and nano electronics researcher. She is currently a postdoctoral associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her research aims to bridge the gap between nanotechnology and synthetic biology to create a new paradigm for computational electronics and invent disruptive technologies for neuroscience. She invented the world’s thinnest channel transistor which overcomes the fundamental thermal limitations and leads to record power-reduction and beyond-Silicon scalability. Her doctoral dissertation has been honored as one of the top 3 dissertations throughout USA and Canada in the fields of Mathematics, Physical Sciences and Engineering. More at
