Living proteins inside our bodies enable smarter computing circuits than the fastes supercomputers--our brains--a one of those proteins is now being harnesses for future quantum computing devices. Look for protein-based electronics first for medical, then for quantum computing within five years. R.C.J.
Clathrin, a protein found in every cell of the human body, could become a self-assembler of future information processing systems that are smaller, faster and cheaper than today's computer circuitry, according to a company investigating the technology. Boston-based ExQor Technologies said it has demonstrated that the material can be formed into nano-sized biolasers suitable for transmitting information. It expects the technology will initially be used in medical applications. The precision of clathrin's self-assembly process, and ultra-small size also could be used to improve solar cells and batteries with nanoscale electronic and photonic properties not possible with silicon.
