BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota researchers find a key to improving computer processing power

A series that covers the true revolutionaries, Game Changers explores how innovators from Big Ten universities — students, faculty and alums — are inventing or reinventing their chosen fields. Whether it’s a desktop PC or a mobile device, any computer you use is powered by processors that communicate with each other. And most improvements in computing efficiency and performance are fundamentally about making those processors send and receive messages faster. Researchers at the University of Minnesota have found a new way to potentially speed up that communication using black phosphorus, a crystalline material that’s plentiful, versatile and easy to develop.
