Serious security: Device-Independent Quantum Key Distribution guards against the most general attacks
Highly conductive organic metal looks promising for disposable electronic devices
Engineers make sound loud enough to bend light on a computer chip
During a thunderstorm, we all know that it is common to hear thunder after we see the lightning. That's because sound travels much slower (768 miles per hour) than light (670,000,000 miles per hour).
Shaping the future of energy storage with conductive clay
In the race to find materials of ever increasing thinness, surface area and conductivity to make better performing battery electrodes, a lump of clay might have just taken the lead. Materials scientists from ...
Wireless electronic implants stop staph, then dissolve
Researchers at Tufts University, in collaboration with a team at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, have demonstrated a resorbable electronic implant that eliminated bacterial infection in mice ...
New 2-D quantum materials for nanoelectronics
Researchers at MIT say they have carried out a theoretical analysis showing that a family of two-dimensional materials exhibits exotic quantum properties that may enable a new type of nanoscale electronics.
Improving flash memory: New molecular storage devices could bridge memory gap
(Phys.org) —New molecules could be the key to solving a looming problem with flash memory storage, researchers say in a new report published in the journal Nature today.
'Cloaking' device uses ordinary lenses to hide objects across continuous range of angles
Inspired perhaps by Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view. The latest effort, developed ...
Researchers devise a means for growing near 2-D chemical gardens (w/ Video)
Lighter, cheaper radio wave device could transform telecommunications
Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have achieved a milestone in modern wireless and cellular telecommunications, creating a radically smaller, more efficient ...
Beating battery drain: Power-conserving chip may increase smartphone battery life
Stream video on your smartphone, or use its GPS for an hour or two, and you'll probably see the battery drain significantly. As data rates climb and smartphones adopt more power-hungry features, battery life ...
Measuring on ice: Researchers create 'smart' ice skating blade
An ice skating blade that informs figure skaters of the stresses they are imposing on their joints has been developed by a group of researchers in the US.
Samsung achieves Wi-Fi data travel feats for 60GHZ band
Stanford scientists create a 'smart' lithium-ion battery that warns of fire hazard
Stanford University scientists have developed a "smart" lithium-ion battery that gives ample warning before it overheats and bursts into flames.
