Power/Performance Bits: March 3


Optimizing fiber networks Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology are working towards reducing the energy consumption of fiber optic communications before the amount of electricity required by the Internet becomes too great to manage. To improve overall efficiency, the team tackled several aspects of fiber optic cables. One of the major energy drains the team identified was the err... » read more

Organ-on-Chip Systems Enable Personalized Medicine


Healthcare has traditionally focused on one-size fits-all medication to treat populations instead of tailoring treatments to individual patients. Recent advances in stem cell technology allow researchers to create disease models for personalized medicine. SEMI spoke with Thomas Pauwelyn, Postdoctoral Researcher at imec, about trends in medical technology innovation such as organ-on-chip devices... » read more
