By perfecting a technique to control the vibrations of high frequency nano-cantilevers, Canadian physicists have overcome a roadblock to using nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) for digital logic and memory applications and have, taken the first sub-nanosecond mechanical measurements of NEMS.
By developing a new antireflective coating that boosts the amount of sunlight captured by solar panels and allows those panels to absorb the entire solar spectrum from nearly any angle, a research team has moved academia and industry closer to realizing high-efficiency, cost-effective solar power.
