Power/Performance Bits: Oct. 26


Printing circuits on irregular shapes Researchers at Pennsylvania State University propose a way to print biodegradable circuits on irregular, complex shapes. “We are trying to enable direct fabrication of circuits on freeform, 3-D geometries,” said Huanyu “Larry” Cheng, professor in Penn State's Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM). “Printing on complicated objec... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Sept. 21


Catching switches in action Researchers from SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University, Hewlett Packard Labs, Penn State University, and Purdue University observed atoms moving inside an electronic switch as it turns on and off, revealing a state they suspect could lead to faster, more energy-efficient devices. "This research is a breakthrough in ultrafast technology and sci... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Oct. 27


Room-temp superconductivity Researchers at the University of Rochester, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Intel created a material with superconducting properties at room temperature, the first time this has been observed. The researchers combined hydrogen with carbon and sulfur to photochemically synthesize simple organic-derived carbonaceous sulfur hydride in a diamond anvil cell, which... » read more
