The World Economic Forum announced 34 visionary companies selected as Technology Pioneers 2009 for their accomplishments as innovators of the highest calibre, and whose technologies will have a deep impact on business and society.
Materials known as 'multiferroics' hold great promise as memory storage devices owing to coupling between their magnetic and electric properties. Alas, in the multiferroic materials known to date, this coupling typically is very weak and limited to low temperatures, hampering their uptake in commercial applications.
Bristol University has won funding for four new centres that will generate the scientists and engineers needed for Britain's future, it was announced today by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) - the UK funding body for science and engineering.
Researchers succeeded in demonstrating one of the most dramatic effects of the electron-electron repulsion: When the interactions between the electrons get too strong, a metal can suddenly become insulating.
The International Society for Quality Electronic Design announced today that it is accepting nominations for the 3rd annual ISQED Quality Award, dubbed as IQ-Award. The IQ-Award was established in 2007 to recognize individuals who have made significant and often lasting contributions to the field of quality in electronic design.
The book is designed to appeal to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemistry, materials science,and chemical engineering departments, by leading them stepwise from the elementary chemistry on which materials science depends, through a discussion of the different classes of materials, and ending with a description of how materials are used in devices and general technology.
