Record-setting p-type transistor demonstrated: New design boasts the highest 'carry mobility' yet measured
Almost all computer chips use two types of transistors: one called p-type, for positive, and one called n-type, for negative. Improving the performance of the chip as a whole requires parallel improvements ...
Deciphering bacterial doomsday decisions: Study finds bacteria delay survival decisions
(Phys.org)—Like a homeowner prepping for a hurricane, the bacterium Bacillus subtilis uses a long checklist to prepare for survival in hard times. In a new study, scientists at Rice University and the Un ...
First detailed report defines limits of methane-exhaling microbial life in an undersea volcano
By some estimates, a third of the Earth's organisms by mass live in our planet's rocks and sediments, yet their lives and ecology are almost a complete mystery. This week, microbiologist James Holden at the ...
Single-atom transistor is 'perfect'
In a remarkable feat of micro-engineering, UNSW physicists have created a working transistor consisting of a single atom placed precisely in a silicon crystal.
At Yale, quantum computing is a (qu)bit closer to reality
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists at Yale University have taken another significant step in the development of quantum computing, a new frontier in computing that promises exponentially faster information processing ...
