  1. New Insights On ‘Captured’ Electrons Could Improve Flash Memory

    An entirely new model of the way electrons are briefly trapped and released in tiny electronic devices suggests that a long-accepted, industry-wide view is just plain wrong about the way these captured electrons affect the behavior of hardware components such as flash memory cells.

  2. New Approach Uses Light Instead Of Robots To Assemble Electronic Components

    An international team of researchers has developed a new light-based manipulation method that could one day be used to mass produce electronic components for smartphones, computers and other devices.

  3. Tech Increases Microfluidic Research Data Output 100-Fold

    Researchers have developed a technique that allows users to collect 100 times more spectrographic information per day from microfluidic devices, as compared to the previous industry standard.

  4. Mechanochemistry Paves The Way To Higher Quality Perovskite Photovoltaics

    For several years, tension has been rising in line with the approaching commercialization of perovskite photovoltaic cells. Now, there has been another small earthquake: it turns out that devices based on these materials can convert solar energy into electricity even more efficiently! There is one condition: instead of producing perovskites by traditional solution methods, they should be produced by ... grinding.

  5. Need Entangled Atoms? Get 'Em FAST! With NIST’s New Patent-Pending Method

    Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have come up with a way to link a group of atoms’ quantum mechanical properties among themselves far more quickly than is currently possible, potentially providing a tool for highly precise sensing and quantum computer applications.

  6. SPIE Optical Systems Design To Collocate With Optatec In 2018

    A new conference on optical instrument science and applications at SPIE Optical Systems Design 2018 and collocation in Frankfurt with next year's Optatec trade show are among highlights of what has become the premier European event for optical instrumentation.

  7. A New Affordable And Easy-To-Use Technology For Dry Eye Diagnosis

    UPM researchers have developed an optical biosensor with an easy, fast and affordable method of read-out that allows the in vitro detection of a biological material. The results obtained are promising for the diagnosis of dry eye diseases.

  8. Quantum Computing On The Move

    A future quantum computer, using "quantum bits" or qubits, might be able to solve problems which are not tractable for classical computers. Scientists are currently struggling to build devices with more than a few qubits, with the challenge arising that the qubits mutually hamper each other’s proper operation.

  9. Future IT: Antiferromagnetic Dysprosium Reveals Magnetic Switching With Less Energy

    HZB scientists have identified a mechanism with which it may be possible to develop a form of magnetic storage that is faster and more energy-efficient. They compared how different forms of magnetic ordering in the rare-earth metal named dysprosium react to a short laser pulse.

  10. Bristol Instruments Makes 2017 Rochester Top 100 List

    Bristol Instruments, Inc. is pleased to announce it has been named one of the area’s top 100 businesses in 2017 by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce. The listing is compiled and verified in partnership with accounting firm KPMG, LLP. This is the 31st consecutive year of the Rochester Chamber Top 100 List, and Bristol Instruments’ second time receiving this distinguished honor.
