Power/Performance Bits: Nov. 16


Light-emitting memory Researchers from Kyushu University and National Taiwan Normal University propose a 'light-emitting memory' based on a perovskite that can simultaneously store and visually transmit data. The team used the idea in conjunction with resistive RAM (RRAM), in which states of high and low resistance represent ones and zeros. "The electrical measurements needed to check the r... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: Dec. 13


Phonon lasers A European consortium recently kicked off a new project that will develop a practical phonon laser. The European consortium, called PHENOMEN, will be coordinated by the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2). Most chips perform functions using an electrical charge (electrons) or by light (photons). In comparison, a phonon “is a quantum of energy or a q... » read more
