Making The Most Of Data Lakes


Having all the semiconductor data available is increasingly necessary for improving manufacturability, yield, and ultimately the reliability of end devices. But without sufficient knowledge of relationships between data from different processes and computationally efficient data structures, the value of any data is significantly reduced. In the semiconductor industry, reducing waste, decreas... » read more

Current Knowledge & Future Development In 2D Magnetic Materials Research


Abstract: "Magnetism in two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdW) materials has recently emerged as one of the most promising areas in condensed matter research, with many exciting emerging properties and significant potential for applications ranging from topological magnonics to low-power spintronics, quantum computing, and optical communications. In the brief time after their discovery, 2D... » read more

Research Bits: March 22


Securing wireless communications without encryption Researchers from Princeton University, University of Michigan–Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute, and Xi’an Jiaotong University developed a millimeter-wave wireless chip that allows secure wireless transmissions and makes it challenging to eavesdrop on high-frequency wireless transmissions, even with multiple colluding bad acto... » read more

Electro-optic spatial light modulator from an engineered organic layer


Abstract "Tailored nanostructures provide at-will control over the properties of light, with applications in imaging and spectroscopy. Active photonics can further open new avenues in remote monitoring, virtual or augmented reality and time-resolved sensing. Nanomaterials with χ(2) nonlinearities achieve highest switching speeds. Current demonstrations typically require a trade-off: they eith... » read more

Inverse Design of Inflatable Soft Membranes Through Machine Learning


Abstract "Across fields of science, researchers have increasingly focused on designing soft devices that can shape-morph to achieve functionality. However, identifying a rest shape that leads to a target 3D shape upon actuation is a non-trivial task that involves inverse design capabilities. In this study, a simple and efficient platform is presented to design pre-programmed 3D shapes starting... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Jan. 25


Nanoscale 3D optics Researchers at Rice University and University of Houston are using 3D printing to build nanostructures of silica for micro-scale electronic, mechanical, and photonic devices. “It’s very tough to make complicated, three-dimensional geometries with traditional photolithography techniques,” said Jun Lou, a professor of materials science and nanoengineering at Rice. ... » read more
