Quantum communication controlled by resonance in 'artificial atoms'
Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, together with colleagues in the US and Australia, have developed a method to control a quantum bit for electronic quantum communication in a series of quantum dots, ...
Graphene plasmonics beats the drug cheats
Wonder material graphene could help detect the presence of drugs or toxins in the body or dramatically improve airport security, University of Manchester researchers have found.
Graphene researchers make a layer cake with atomic precision
Graphene and associated one-atom-thick crystals offer the possibility of a vast range of new materials and devices by stacking individual atomic layers on top of each other, new research from the University ...
Disney's magical vision calls for 3-D printed optical elements (w/ Video)
Technology developed for visual 'cloaking' applied to enable more efficient transfer of electrons
A new approach that allows objects to become "invisible" has now been applied to an entirely different area: letting particles "hide" from passing electrons, which could lead to more efficient thermoelectric ...
Boosting heat transfer with nanoglue
(Phys.org)—A team of interdisciplinary researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has developed a new method for significantly increasing the heat transfer rate across two different materials. Results ...
Stanford researchers demonstrate carbon nanotube based computer chip
Stretchable electronics: A gel that is clearly revolutionary
Researchers are determined to manufacture stretchable biomedical devices that interface directly with organs such as the skin, heart and brain. Electronic devices, however, are usually made from hard materials ...
Planting imperfections at specific spots within diamond lattice could advance quantum computing
By carefully controlling the position of an atomic-scale diamond defect within a volume smaller than what some viruses would fill, researchers have cleared a path toward better quantum computers and nanoscale ...
DNP unveils new plastic cover sheet for handheld devices
Researchers keep electronic devices cool with nanotechnology
A team of scientists from Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork and the National University of Singapore have designed and fabricated ultra-small devices for energy-efficient electronics. ...
Startup glasses overlay Internet on real world
While Google prepares to release eyewear that provides a window to the Web, a startup on the edge of its campus is readying glasses that overlay the Internet on the world in 3D.
Training light to cool the material it strikes
(Phys.org)—Light might one day be used to cool the materials through which it passes, instead of heating them, thanks to a breakthrough by engineers at Lehigh and Johns Hopkins Universities.
Iowa State engineers use keyboard, mouse and mobile device 'fingerprints' to protect data
We've all typed in a password to access a computer network. But how secure is that? Passwords can be hacked or hijacked to get at sensitive personal, corporate or even national security data.
