Scientists from Skoltech together with their collaborators in the United States and Singapore have developed a neural network that enables tweaking of semiconductor crystals in a controlled way to achieve excellent properties for electronics.
Scientists from the University of Basel have fitted superconducting contacts in an ultrathin semiconductor, for the first time.
Researchers from the University of Sydney and the National Institute for Material Science (NIMS) in Japan have identified an artificial network of nanowires that can be adjusted to react in a brain-like manner upon electrical stimulation.
Precision motion control and nano-positioning industry leader, PI, plays a key role in distance targeting of geological samples for testing by the Mars rover, Perseverance.
PI introduces a new affordable motorized linear module series, L-812, designed for high load capacity and dynamics required by higher load precision motion and automation applications. These high performance linear slides deliver higher throughput in production while watching the bottom line on equipment cost.
Today, nanofabrication of electronic systems has reached a 1 nm scale (10-9 m). The quick development of nanotechnology and nanoscience presently needs atomic-scale optical spectroscopy to define atomistic structures that will influence the functions and properties of the electronic devices.
Hafnium-based thin films, with a thickness of only a few nanometres, show an unconventional form of ferroelectricity.
Power converters are the little-known systems that make electricity so magical. They are what allow us to plug in our computers, lamps and televisions and turn them on in a snap. Converters transform the alternating current (AC) that comes out of wall sockets into the exact level of direct current (DC) that our electronics need. But they also tend to lose, in average, up to 20% of their energy in the process.
If you want to build a fully functional nanosized robot, you need to incorporate a host of capabilities, from complicated electronic circuits and photovoltaics to sensors and antennas.
Nanobots are machines whose components are at the nano-scale (one millionth of a millimetre), and can be designed in such a way that they have the ability to move autonomously in fluids.
