radiation in the wavelength range of 30 to 300 microns — is gaining attention due to its applications in security screening, medical and industrial imaging, agricultural inspection, astronomical research, and other areas. Traditional methods of generating terahertz radiation, however, usually involve large and expensive instruments....
Carbyne will be the strongest of a new class of microscopic materials if and when anyone can make it in bulk. If they do, they'll find carbyne nanorods or nanoropes have a host of remarkable and useful properties, as described in a new paper by Rice University theoretical physicist Boris Yakobson and his group.
A new method of imaging cells is allowing scientists to see tiny structures inside the 'control centre' of the cell for the first time. The microscopic technique, developed by researchers at Queen Mary University of London, represents a major advance for cell biologists....
Texas Instruments unveiled what it asserts is the industry’s first inductance-to-digital converter (LDC), a data converter category that uses coils and springs as inductive sensors. This contactless sensing technology can be used to measure the position, motion, or composition of a metal or conductive
Bridgelux introduced its V Series of Chip-on-Board LED array products offering high flux density in small source size packages for sub 1000 lumen commercial and residential lighting markets where tight beam control and high quality light matter. The LED arrays initially consist of
StarTech.com announced two new PCI Express RAID controller Cards -- the PEXSAT34RH and PEXSAT34SFF -- which balance the performance characteristics of solid state storage with the capacity associated with standard hard drives. These cards feature
Writing in Nature Communications, researchers at The University of Manchester led by Dr Aravind Vijayaraghavan, and Dr Michael Hirtz at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), have demonstrated that membranes can be directly 'written' on to a graphene surface using a technique known as Lipid Dip-Pen Nanolithography (L-DPN).
A Swiss university has launched what it calls the world's most ambitious neuroscience project with a budget of 1.2 billion euros ($1.6 billion). The Human Brain Project, co-funded by the European Union, plans to use supercomputers to model the brain and then simulate drugs and treatments for diseases that cost hundreds of billions of euros annually in Europe alone.
The Nobel Prize judges delayed the announcement of the physics winner by an hour Tuesday - but they can't say why for 50 years. Peter Higgs and Francois Englert won the 2013 award for their theory about how subatomic particles acquire mass.
Starting in about a decade, Kingston, Jamaica, will probably be off-the-charts hot - permanently. Other places will soon follow. Singapore in 2028. Mexico City in 2031. Cairo in 2036. Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043. And eventually the whole world in 2047.
NASA engineers were troubleshooting why the Jupiter-bound spacecraft ran into some problems after successfully zipping past Earth to boost its speed toward the outer solar system. Despite the snag, the team said Wednesday Juno was on track to arrive at the giant gas planet in 2016.

B&K Precision launched its new “pwrApp” for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Adding greater value to its DC power solutions, B&K Precision’s pwrApp allows full monitoring and control of network-connected (via WLAN) XLN-GL series of power supplies over local wireless networks.
Global Specialties today introduced the ASURO Robot. The ASURO is a small autonomous multi-sensored robot developed for educational purposes by the DLR, the German Aerospace Center (like NASA). Highly versatile, the ASURO is completely programmable in C.
Worldwide shipments of personal computers fell in the third quarter of the year, the sixth straight quarter of decline as cheaper tablet computers and smartphones cut into demand, according to market research firms IDC and Gartner Inc. IDC said the market fell nearly 8 percent, to 81.6 million...
Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new high frequency, high power, 7-bit digital step attenuator (DSA) from Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (Peregrine). The PE43704 operates from 9 kHz to 8 GHz....
