Today’s ‘half duplex’ radios send signals and receive signals, but can only perform one of these functions at a time. Full duplex radios have the potential to double spectral efficiency, but would also generate double the amount of interference. Looking to address the problem, researchers from New York University (NYU) and T...

LISA Pathfinder shows ‘astonishing’ accuracy
12.06.2016 - 12:06
Results following two months’ of science operations show the two cubes at the heart of the LISA Pathfinder spacecraft are falling freely through space, influenced only by gravity and unperturbed by other external forces. And, says the European Space Agency (ESA), the precision is more than five times better than originally required. Det...
On chip energy storage enabled by hybrid nanomaterial
