TaN Nanowires At 300 mm Wafer Scale For Quantum Computing And More

A technical paper titled "Ultra-thin TaN Damascene Nanowire Structures on 300 mm Si Wafers for Quantum Applications" was published by researchers at NY CREATES, United States Air Force Research Laboratory and SUNY Polytechnic Institute. Abstract: "We report on the development and characterization of superconducting damascene tantalum nitride (TaN) nanowires, 100 nm to 3 μm wide, with TaN thi... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: March 2

Fast-charging EV battery Electric vehicle adoption faces challenges from consumers' range anxiety and the extended lengths of time needed to charge a car's battery. Researchers at Pennsylvania State University are trying to address this by developing lithium iron phosphate EV batteries that have a range of 250 miles with the ability to charge in 10 minutes. It also is expected to have a lifeti... » read more
