Farmers of the future will utilize drones, robots and GPS
Today's agriculture has transformed into a high-tech enterprise that most 20th-century farmers might barely recognize.
New research points way to less vulnerable computer memory
(Phys.org)—Have you ever been working on a document on your computer and it suddenly crashes? Maybe the power goes out or there's a software glitch that causes it to freeze and you lose everything you've been working on ...
Researchers build atomically thin gas and chemical sensors
The relatively recent discovery of graphene, a two-dimensional layered material with unusual and attractive electronic, optical and thermal properties, led scientists to search for other atomically thin materials ...
Using E-petals for making stretchable metal conductors
Researchers use oxides to flip graphene conductivity
Graphene, a one-atom thick lattice of carbon atoms, is often touted as a revolutionary material that will take the place of silicon at the heart of electronics. The unmatched speed at which it can move electrons, ...
Graphene meets heat waves
EPFL researchers have shed new light on the fundamental mechanisms of heat dissipation in graphene and other two-dimensional materials. They have shown that heat can propagate as a wave over very long distances. ...
Electron spins controlled using sound waves
The ability to control the intrinsic angular momentum of individual electrons – their "spins" – could lead to a world of new technologies that involve storing and processing information.
