Creative use of noise brings bio-inspired electronic improvement

In conventional electronics, a great deal of effort is devoted to eliminating stochastic resonance (SR)—the annoying hiss that generally hinders the detection of weak signals and degrades overall device performance. But, ...

The turbulent healing powers of plasma

Researchers are starting to discover the curing powers of plasma—bringing the ion-based form of matter into medical realms. A kind of plasma called non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma can help heal wounds, destroy ...

New design lets micro-clock resonators ring like a bell

You can't hear most of them, but the world is running on different kinds of mechanical oscillations. For example, inside the average electronic wristwatch is a sealed canister containing a 3 mm long quartz crystal resonator. ...

Researchers create magnetic RAM

MIPT researchers teamed up with collaborators for a successful demonstration of magnetoelectric random access memory (MELRAM). A transition to magnetoelectric memory could enable substantial energy savings, as well as the ...
