Microchips can become smaller using helium

Physicists at Indiana University and the University of Tennessee have cracked the code to making microchips smaller, and the key is helium. Smaller microchips are faster and capable of doing more things, but the wires that conduct electricity to them must follow suit. But there's a physical limit to how small they can become—unless they are designed differently. Recently, a team of physicists has developed a model system of electronics packed into a one-dimensional tube by using helium.
