Running an LED in reverse could cool future computers

In a finding that runs counter to a common assumption in physics, researchers at the University of Michigan ran a light emitting diode (LED) with electrodes reversed in order to cool another device mere nanometers away.

A human-caused climate change signal emerges from the noise

By comparing simulations from 20 different computer models to satellite observations, Lawrence Livermore climate scientists and colleagues from 16 other organizations have found that tropospheric and stratospheric temperature ...

NTT develops current-injection photonic-crystal laser

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation has developed an current-injection photonic-crystal laser with ultralow power consumption that can be applied to off-chip and on-chip optical data transmission for microprocessors.

Toshiba's low-power SRAM chip aims to cut device drain

(Phys.org)—Toshiba has announced a low-power embedded SRAM memory chip which may make future mobile devices last longer. Presenting its SRAM developments at the International Solid-State Circuit Conference in San Francisco ...
