A new sensor for light, heat and touch

Inspired by the behaviour of natural skin, researchers at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Linkoping University, have developed a sensor that will be suitable for use with electronic skin. It can measure changes in ...

Photonic radiation sensors survive huge doses undamaged

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have published landmark test results that suggest a promising class of sensors can be used in high-radiation environments and to advance important medical, ...

How your WiFi can protect against intruders

The applications of wireless networks go far beyond logging onto the free Airport WiFi while you wait to board your flight, or binge watching the latest Netflix series on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Graphene enables high-speed electronics on flexible materials

A flexible detector for terahertz frequencies (1000 gigahertz) has been developed by Chalmers researchers using graphene transistors on plastic substrates. It is the first of its kind, and can extend the use of terahertz ...

New sensor improves the level of efficiency in detecting ozone

Researchers from the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló, the São Paulo State University in Brasil and the Aix-Marseille University in France have developed a more effective ozone sensor than the ones used so far. The new sensor ...

Chips with everything

It looks just like a memory stick but that is where the similarity ends. Inside, the tiny black box is far more sophisticated, contains considerably more technology and is offering a revolution in space dosimetry. The tiny ...

NRL develops low cost, high efficiency solar sensor

Research scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Electronics Science and Technology Division have developed a novel low cost, highly efficient spectral sensor for field analysis of solar cell irradiance performance ...
