- We have been hearing about the imminent demise of Moore's Law quite a lot recently. Most of these predictions have been targeting the 7nm node and 2020 as the end-point. But we need to recognize that, in fact, 28nm is actually the last node of Moore's Law.
- Gadgets are set to become flexible, highly efficient and much smaller, following a breakthrough in measuring two-dimensional 'wonder' materials, report investigators.
- Research on the use of magnets to steer light has opened the door to new communications systems which could be smaller, cheaper and more agile than fiber optics.
- A key advancement in the design of high performance carbon-based electronics has been made by scientists, outlines a new report.
- Modern computer technology is based on the transport of electric charge in semiconductors. But this technology's potential will be reaching its limits in the near future, since the components deployed cannot be miniaturized further. But, there is another option: using an electron's spin, instead of its charge, to transmit information. A team of scientists is now demonstrating how this works.
- Researchers have developed a thermally conductive rubber material that represents a breakthrough for creating soft, stretchable machines and electronics.
- In the future, wide-ranging composite materials are expected to be stronger, lighter, cheaper and greener for our planet, thanks to a new invention. Nine years ago, an American researcher invented an energy-efficient technology that harnesses largely low-temperature, water-based reactions.
- Graphene's unusual electronic structure enables this extraordinary material to break many records of strength, electricity and heat conduction. Physicists have used a model to explain the electronic structure of graphene measured by a new spectroscopic platform. These techniques could promote future research on stable and accurate quantum measurements for new 2D electronics.
- Researchers have developed a new approach to dynamically tune the micro- and nano-scale roughness of atomically thin MoS2, and consequently the appropriate degree of hydrophobicity for various potential MoS2-based applications.
- The European Union activated its Galileo satellite navigation system in December 2016. The EU is dedicated to setting this system apart from other navigation systems such as GPS -- the US counterpart of Galileo. Researchers in Belgium have now risen to this challenge as well: they designed authentication features that will make it even more difficult to send out false Galileo signals.
- Cellphones and other devices could soon be controlled with touchless gestures and charge themselves using ambient light, thanks to new LED arrays that can both emit and detect light.
- High volume ratio of carbon micropores combined with the assembly of meso-/macropores remarkably improve the capabilities of Li-S batteries, which relieve shuttle effect by strong physical absorption from micropores, increase sulfur content and supply abundant avenue for electrolyte infiltration and ion transportation by meso-/macropores.
- Researchers have developed a family of highly stretchable and UV curable (SUV) elastomers that can be stretched by up to 1100%, and are suitable for UV curing based 3-D printing techniques. Using high resolution 3-D printing with the SUV elastomer compositions enables the direct creation of complex 3-D lattices or hollow structures that exhibit extremely large deformation. Fabrication time for such SUV elastomers is also greatly reduced.

- A new study has introduced a new technique that efficiently isolates circulating tumor cells from whole blood at a liquid-liquid interface.
- Periodic motions of atoms over a length of a billionth of a millionth of a meter are mapped by ultrashort x-ray pulses. In a novel type of experiment, regularly arranged atoms in a crystal are set into vibration by a laser pulse and a sequence of snapshots is generated via changes of x-ray absorption.
- Microfluidics, electronics and inkjet technology underlie a newly developed all-in-one biochip that can analyze cells for research and clinical applications.
- Unavoidably, each digital information we send around the globe is prone to be lost. Travelling long ways in wires, the initial signal decays and scatters by colliding with impurities and neighboring electromagnetic fields. Therefore, beyond each bit of your desired message, it is necessary to send other hidden bits of information that check for mistakes and take action in case of losses; while devices become smaller and smaller, this issue becomes more significant. Scientists are aiming to find
- Researchers have designed a small voltaic cell that are sustained by the acidic fluids in the stomach and generate enough power to run sensors or drug delivery devices that can reside in the gastrointestinal tract for extended periods. This type of power could offer a safer and longer-lasting alternative to the traditional batteries now used to power such devices.
- The addition of specific molecules to 'trap' charge carriers in semiconducting polymers proves to be a powerful method of mastering the materials' electrical properties. Now, materials researchers have discovered a way to control the electrical properties of organic semiconductors within the same material.
- An important breakthrough has been reached in the development of energy-efficient electronic circuits using transistors based on germanium.
- The electronic data connections within microchips are increasingly becoming a bottleneck in the exponential growth of data traffic. Optical connections are the obvious successors but optical data transmission requires an adequate nanoscale light source, and this has been lacking. Scientists have created a light source that has the right characteristics: a nano-LED that is 1000 times more efficient than its predecessors, and is capable of handling gigabits per second.
Artificially introduced atomic-level sensors enable measurements of the electric field within a working semiconductor deviceA new method for sensing the electric field generated in semiconductor devices during operation has now been developed by researchers. The technique is demonstrated for a diamond device, with nitrogen-vacancy centers acting as local electric-field probes, subject to bias voltages up to 150 volt.
