Quantum mechanical con game

For the first time, physicists have come up with a scheme that would allow a quantum mechanical expert to win every time in a con game with a victim who only knows about classical physics.

Melting defects could lead to smaller, more powerful microchips

As microchips shrink, even tiny defects in the lines, dots and other shapes etched on them become major barriers to performance. Princeton engineers have now found a way to literally melt away such defects, using a process that could dramatically improve chip quality without increasing fabrication cost.

The Hitchhikers Guide to Nanotechnology - nanotechnology discussion Scotland

Nanotechnology it's uses and challenges for business. As a topic, nanotechnology is complex, controversial and cool all at the same time and this Business Forum session aims to put it all into perspective - not by looking at future 'imagine this' or 'what if' scenarios, but at how and why emerging technologies are being put to use in all kinds of really useful products today.

Contact through silver particles in ink

Conductor paths in sensor systems have to be correctly 'wired'. Now, instead of using obtrusive connecting wires, researchers print the conductor paths. The connections thus produced are thinner, and the sensor delivers more accurate measurements.
