The Edge: A New Magnetic Phenomenon With Industrial Potential

The realm of the very, extremely small is an exciting world for physicists. The nanoscale is where new and surprising phenomena can be discovered. Materials as thin as 100atoms can be explored. Nature ceases to behave according to the macrocosmic law of physics. This is unlike the rest of the cosmos or the world around it. The […]

The Speed of Light is Faster than the Speed of Light: How to Overcome the Physical Limitations of Telecommunications Today

The Internet of Skills will digitalize and make human skills more accessible to all. This future internet will let you use robot technology and haptic feedback in order to share expertise instantly, no matter where you are located or what the problem is. Imagine a highly skilled surgeon performing tele-surgery on an individual patient from […]

Low-cost Production of High-Quality Graphene Using Carbon Monoxide

Researchers have created the first graphene-synthesis method that uses carbon monoxide for carbon. This method is fast and inexpensive and can be used in electronic circuits as well as gas sensors and optics. Researchers from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, the RAS Institute of Solid State Physics and Aalto University […]

A new organic transistor allows for higher-performance circuit integration in high-performance mobile devices

Multiple logic circuits can be constructed using a single transistor. The Tokyo University of Science and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), have developed an organic anti-ambipolar transistor that can perform any of five logic gate operations (AND OR, NAND OR, NOR or XOR). This is possible by adjusting the input voltages of its […]

Chip Photodetection – 2D Material Heterojunctions in “Post-Moore Era” Microelectronics

Photonic integrated circuits, or PICs, use photons to carry information and have high transmission speeds, low delays, and anti-electromagnetic crossingtalk. These benefits are expected to address the problems with microelectronics chips’ speed, power consumption and integration density. This is crucial for promoting breakthroughs and quantum information technology in microelectronics, micro-sensing, and microelectronics in the “postMoore era.” Photonic […]

Ultrafast Computers are Coming: Laser Bursts Drive the Fastest-Ever Logic Gates

This promising method involves using laser light to guide electrons through matter and then using this control for electronic circuit elements. This is known as lightwave electronics. Amazingly, current lasers can generate electricity bursts in fractions of a second, that is, one millionth of a trillionth of a second. Yet our capacity to process information at […]

Smart LED Contact Lenses to Treat and Prevent Eye Disease

Smart LED contact lenses designed to treat diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is a chronic, long-term disease that can lead to many complications. It requires constant care. Diabetes can lead to vision loss and blindness. In collaboration with Dr. Sangbaie Shin of PHI BIOMED Co., a POSTECH research team headed by Professor Sei Kwang Hain and Ph.D. candidate […]

A new polymer membrane technology improves carbon capture efficiency

Scientists have created a new membrane technology to remove carbon dioxide (CO 2) more efficiently from mixed gases like power plant emissions. Rich Spontak, coauthor of the paper, said that the new membranes could be demonstrated by examining mixtures of nitrogen dioxide and CO 2. This is because the CO 2/nitrogen dioxide combinations are especially relevant for reducing […]

Ultrathin Fuel Cell Makes Electricity from Your Body’s Sugar

This is what engineers at MIT and the Technical University of Munich believe. A new type of glucose fuel cell has been developed that converts glucose directly to electricity. This device measures only 400 nanometers thick and is about one-tenth of the width of a human’s hair. This sugary power source produces approximately 43 microwatts per sq. centimeter of electricity. […]

Unique Quantum Material Could Allow For Incredible Powerful, Ultra-Compact Computing

Information is transferred through semiconductors using electron movement and stored in magnetic materials in the direction of the electron spin. To shrink devices while improving their performance–a goal of an emerging field called spin-electronics (“spintronics”)–researchers are searching for unique materials that combine both quantum properties. A Columbia University team of chemists, physicists and scientists discovered a strong […]
