Intel helps build low-power transistor

As the search for a silicon transistor replacement rolls on, Intel and a European company called Qinetiq have created a transistor that consumes far less power and performs better than the transistors inserted into today's chips.

Following two years of joint research, the companies announced this week that they created a "quantum well" transistor out of indium antimonide developed by Qinetiq.
