Tiny lab on a chip analyzes very small volumes of liquid

Scientists from the Institute of Laser Engineering at Osaka University created a prototype terahertz optical spectroscopy system with a sensing area equivalent to the cross-sectional area of just five human hairs. By measuring ...

New ultrathin capacitor could enable energy-efficient microchips

The silicon-based computer chips that power our modern devices require vast amounts of energy to operate. Despite ever-improving computing efficiency, information technology is projected to consume around 25% of all primary ...

A chip-scale microscope for high-throughput fluorescence imaging

Conventional light microscopy has been instrumental for studying cells and microorganisms; fluorescence microscopy enabled visualization of even smaller cell features by selectively adding fluorescent labels to molecules. ...

Digitalization found to be an important climate tool

Carbon emissions from the internet are on a par with emissions from the aerospace industry, but at the same time digital technologies are crucial to winning the battle against climate change.

Leap in lidar could improve safety, security of new technology

Whether it's on top of a self-driving car or embedded inside the latest gadget, Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) systems will likely play an important role in our technological future, enabling vehicles to 'see' in real-time, ...

News sustainable plant-derived plastic to aid organ research

Dr. Maïwenn Kersaudy-Kerhoas and Alfredo Ongaro from the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering have worked with industry partners to create the first Organ-On-Chip technology that uses Polylactic ...
