Rough surface could keep small electronic parts from sticking together
When a piece of gift-wrapping tape sticks to itself, it's frustrating, but when small parts in a microgear or micromotor stick together, an electronic device may not work well, if at all. Scientists now report in the journal ...
Fractal wire patterns enhance stretchability of electronic devices
Researchers demonstrate holographic memory device
(Phys.org) —A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering and Russian Academy of Science have demonstrated a new type of holographic memory device that ...
Optical nanocavity to boost light absorption in semiconductors
Associated with unhappy visits to the dentist, "cavity" means something else in the branch of physics known as optics.
Plastic products could easily become electronic with first moldable all-carbon circuits
Researchers make flexible, transparent e-paper from silicon
Inkjet-printed graphene electrodes may lead to low-cost, large-area, possibly foldable devices
Electronics like it cold, and 30 K cryocooler delivers
Ballistic transport in graphene suggests new type of electronic device
Using electrons more like photons could provide the foundation for a new type of electronic device that would capitalize on the ability of graphene to carry electrons with almost no resistance even at room ...
Team aims to create graphene nanoribbon 'wires' capable of carrying information thousands of times faster
"Ballistic transport " – it sounds like a blast into the future. And it is.
Gel-based audio speaker demonstrates capabilities of ionic conductors, long thought limited in application (w/ Video)
In a materials science laboratory at Harvard University, a transparent disk connected to a laptop fills the room with music—it's the "Morning" prelude from Peer Gynt, played on an ionic speaker.
