The volume of research into advanced semiconductors is rising and widening. The latest batch includes hybrid power-gating architecture, RRAM devices models, improved FMEA, quantum machine learning, enhanced nonlinear optics, harvesting energy after sundown, direct chemisorption-assisted nanotransfer printing, and more. Topping the list of researchers this week are ETH Zurich, Stanford Unive... » read more

Electrically pumped laser transmitter integrated on thin-film lithium niobate


New research paper from Harvard, in collaboration with Freedom Photonics and HyperLight Corp, and with funding from DARPA and Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Abstract "Integrated thin-film lithium niobate (TFLN) photonics has emerged as a promising platform for the realization of high-performance chip-scale optical systems. Of particular importance are TFLN electro-optic modulato... » read more

Bell state analyzer for spectrally distinct photons


Abstract "We demonstrate a Bell state analyzer that operates directly on frequency mismatch. Based on electro-optic modulators and Fourier-transform pulse shapers, our quantum frequency processor design implements interleaved Hadamard gates in discrete frequency modes. Experimental tests on entangled-photon inputs reveal fidelities of ∼98% for discriminating between the |Ψ+⟩ and |Ψ−⟩... » read more

Week In Review: Auto, Security, Pervasive Computing


Automotive Suzuki will collaborate with SkyDrive on flying cars. SkyDrive is working on an air taxi service that it wants to launch at the 2025 World Exposition in Osaka, Japan. Recalls: The car company Tesla is recalling 947 vehicles in the United States because rearview image lags and does not display immediately when the car is put into reverse, said the National Highway Traffic Safety A... » read more
