RTI International has developed a revolutionary lighting technology that is more energy efficient than the common incandescent light bulb and does not contain mercury, making it environmentally safer than the compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulb.
At today's International Solid State Circuit Conference, imec and its research partners Renesas Technology Corp. and M4S present a complete transceiver with RF, baseband and data converter circuits in 40nm low-power CMOS.
Am Max-Planck-Institut fuer Biophysik in Frankfurt am Main steht Wissenschaftlern nun ein hochmodernes Zentrum zur Verfuegung, in dem die Struktur und die Funktionsweise von Membranproteinen untersucht werden kann.
Long-wavelength VCSELs (Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers) for the next generation of high-speed communication systems have been developed in the European project MOSEL, a three-year joint research program lead by CEA-Leti.
ENT Magazine is an international magazine covering the latest research, applications, and opinions in the field of nanotechnology for the environment - alternative energies, water, air and soil purification.
In January 2010, a new Helmholtz university junior research group was set up at the GKSS Research Centre in Geesthacht. The new group devotes itself to the interface properties of polymer-metal hybrid structures produced by advanced joining technologies.
A new, more efficient low-cost microring resonator for high speed telecommunications systems has been developed. This technological advance capitalizes on the benefits of optical fibers to transmit large quantities of data at ultra-fast speeds.
Hydrogen-powered fuel cells and solar energy are the best hope for a more environmentally friendly and resource-sparing energy supply in the future. Previous approaches to this have suffered from high costs and the limited lifetime of their catalytic systems. Researchers have now introduced an efficient, robust photoelectrode made of common, inexpensive materials.
