Water repellent monolithic ceramic capacitor suppresses ion migration
31.07.2015 - 23:34
Murata has announced a water-repellent monolithic ceramic capacitor developed by applying an innovative surface treatment. The miniaturisation of electronic devices, densely packed with components can cause an increase in the possibility of malfunctions influencing circuit operation due to ion migration. Ion migration may occur when voltag...
Sol-gel capacitor dielectric rivals batteries in energy density
31.07.2015 - 23:31
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a capacitor dielectric material, using a hybrid silica sol-gel material and a nanoscale self-assembled monolayer of octylphosphonic acid, which is claimed to provide electrical energy storage capacity rivalling that of batteries. The bilayer structure blocks the injection of ...

Researchers demonstrate the world's first white lasers
29.07.2015 - 23:38
Researchers at Arizona State University claim to have created the first lasers that can shine light over the full spectrum of visible colours. The device's inventors suggest the laser could find use in visual displays, lighting and a laser-based version of Wi-Fi. Previous research has created lasers that usually only emit one colour of li...
