Plasmon Energy Expansion Thermometry Enables Temperatures to be Mapped in Nanometer Units

Plasmon Energy Expansion Thermometry Enables Temperatures to be Mapped in Nanometer Units

Overheating is a major problem for the microprocessors that run our smartphones and computers. But a team of UCLA and USC scientists have made a breakthrough that should enable engineers to design microprocessors that minimize that problem: They have developed a thermal imaging technique that can "see" how the temperature changes from point to point inside the smallest electronic circuits.

New Method to Explore Nanoscale Thermodynamics

New Method to Explore Nanoscale Thermodynamics

Anyone who has ever toasted the top of their legs with their laptop or broiled their ear on a cell phone knows that microelectronic devices can give off a lot of heat. These devices contain a multitude of transistors, and although each one produces very little heat individually, their combined thermal output is significant and can damage the device. [More]
Quantum Point Contacts Help Develop Spin-Field-Effect Transistor

Quantum Point Contacts Help Develop Spin-Field-Effect Transistor

Scientists have long been puzzled by the spin-field-effect transistor (spin FET) and great efforts have been put into attempt of solving the long challenged problems. Now a Tainan-based National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) research team has successfully developed the first spin FET. [More]
