We calculated that if we could make this material thin enough, small vibrations could produce a microwatt of electrical energy that could be useful for sensors or other devices implanted in the face.
The reaction produces a small amount of electricity--in the microwatt range, Melhuish said--but enough that it can be accumulated and then expended in useful work.
This new mechanism enables micrometer scale integrated all-optical transistors to perform logic operations over multiple frequency channels in trillionths of a second at microwatt power levels, which are about one millionth of the power required by a household light bulb," said John.
Gate densities and power consumptions for high density core and mixed-signal core cells are 124 K gates/mm2 and 46 microwatt per megahertz per gate (oW/MHz/gate) and 120 K gates/mm2and 28 oW/MHz/gate, respectively.
