I again have found another important technological advancement within certain key elements of my biophysics model and information.

This concerns the use of Solitron Waves which do not lose shape or energy as they travel.

The use of a Solitron Transistor is faster then electrons in a conventional transisitor and will allow supercomputers to be more common as the technology becomes mainstream due to the high process speeds that will be achieveable with this type of wave.


A transistor based not on the customary sandwich of semiconductor layers but on a Josephson junction (itself a sandwich consisting of two superconducting layers separated by a thin film of insulating material) architecture, and involving not the gated flow of electrons or holes (the empty spaces left behind by electrons) but the controllable flow of tiny magnetic vortices, has been built and tested by Farshid Raissi, a scientist at the Toosi University of Technology in Tehran.

The vortices, set in motion in the form of solitons (pulses that do not lose energy or their shape as they travel) travel at the speed of light and therefore are much faster than the electrons in ordinary transistors, possibly leading, Raissi argues, to quicker switching speeds (raissi@kntu.ac.ir).
