Spintronics research uncovers candidate material for radiation resistant devices
17.02.2015 - 22:39
New materials that could yield higher computational speeds and lower power consumption are being researched by a team from the University of Michigan and Western Michigan University.Because most modern circuits rely on controlling electronic charge, which can be disrupted, spintronics, may offer a more robust alternative. However, making a radi...
Door opens to wider use of THz photonics, says research team
17.02.2015 - 22:36
A solid state technology platform developed by scientists in Italy and France is said to open the door to the use of THz photonics in a range of applications.While there has been much research into THz technology, the team says one missing piece has been a complementary detection technology. To solve this problem, the researchers used an approa...
