Atomically thin light-emitting device opens the possibility for 'invisible' displays
27.03.2018 - 23:35
A bright-light emitting device that is millimetres wide and fully transparent when turned off has been built by a team of engineers at the University of California (UC), Berkeley. The light emitting material is a monolayer semiconductor, which is just three atoms thick. According to the team, this discovery could pave the way in creatin...
Physicists reveal material for high-speed quantum internet
27.03.2018 - 23:28
As the race for quantum computing continues, so does the development into quantum technologies targeted to neturalise the threat of hacking. Classical cryptographic algorithms are complexity-based and can remain secure only for a certain period of time. Unlike its classical counterpart, quantum cryptography relies on the fundamental laws of p...
Next-gen optical disk to solve data storage challenge
27.03.2018 - 23:20
Using gold nanomaterials combined with a hybrid glass material, scientists from from RMIT University and the Wuhan Institute of Technology say they have demonstrated a new type of high-capacity optical disk that can hold data securely for more than 600 years. This gold-generated next-generation optical disk is said to have up to 10T...
6SigmaET brings VR to thermal simulation
20.03.2018 - 23:04
Future Facilities has launched Release 12 of its thermal simulation software, 6SigmaET. The latest release incorporates a number of significant modelling enhancements that the company says will help to boost overall simulation speed. Release 12 includes a prototype virtual reality (VR) visualisation mode. In what it claims is a world first fe...
Xilinx looks beyond FPGAs and unveils new product category - ACAP
20.03.2018 - 22:58
Xilinx has announced, what it describes as, a new breakthrough product category called Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP) that provides capabilities significantly beyond that of an FPGA. An ACAP is a highly integrated multi-core heterogeneous compute platform that can be changed at the hardware level to adapt to the needs of a wide...
