X-Ray Beams Bake in Ceramic Circuits


Stone Age secrets may soon unlock new power in Silicon Age devices.

In the hunt to find a material whose computer chip potential rivals silicon, researchers have discovered a way to “draw” superconducting circuits on ceramics using only an X-ray beam. The procedure relies on the precise induction of the same changes that happen in kiln-baked clay, bypassing the complex, toxin-heavy stages of chemical layering needed to make current electronics.
