Power/Performance Bits: June 29


Persistent photoconductivity Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), University of Wisconsin Madison, and the University of Toledo, discovered a unique effect in metal-halide perovskite semiconductors that could be used in neuromorphic computing systems. Perovskites are currently being investigated as highly efficient solar cells. In fact,... » read more

Thermometers for 3D measurements The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a nano-thermometer technology that could one day take 3D temperature measurements at the microscopic scale. The project, called Thermal Magnetic Imaging and Control (Thermal MagIC), hopes to develop tiny thermometers based on magnetic nanoparticles. These tiny thermometers could be injec... » read more
