The University of Wurzburg has modified SiC crystals to exhibit new and surprising properties. They enable the best electronic properties of diamond to be used in a solicon material.
This makes them interesting with regard to the design of high-performance computers or data transmission.SiC crystals consist of a regular lattice formed by silicon and carbon atoms. At present, these semiconductors are extensively used in micro and optoelectronics. They are particularly suited for used in high temperature applications in power semiconductors.Now physicists from Saint Petersburg and the University of Würzburg have succeeded in manipulating SiC in a way so it can be used in novel, super-fast quantum computers.
