Lawrence Berkeley National Lab scientists have successfully paired ferroelectric and ferrimagnetic materials so that their alignment can be controlled with a small electric field at near room temperatures. This is an achievement that could open doors to ultra low-power microprocessors, storage devices and next-generation electronics. The technology should lead to more impressive performance longer lasting […]

Penn State researchers have made hundreds of observations of individual potassium atoms, cooled to just slightly above absolute zero. The atoms were trapped by lasers in a two-dimensional grid, and interacting with each other in intriguing ways that could help to reveal the behaviors of superconducting electrons. The team’s scientists suspect that they have observed […]

Researchers at ETH Zurich have investigated how fast electrons can ultimately be controlled with electric fields. The ETH team’s work is important for the petahertz electronic speed ranges of the future. Electronic components have become faster and faster over the years, thus making powerful computers and other technologies possible. Speed is the basis for technologies […]

Cornell University scientists can both sequester carbon dioxide and produce electricity using their newly developed an oxygen-assisted aluminum/carbon dioxide power cell that uses electrochemical reactions. Cornell’s press release states, “the human race will always leave its carbon footprint on the Earth, it must continue to find ways to lessen the impact of its fossil fuel […]

University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering (UTFASE) engineers have developed a technique powered by renewable energies such as solar or wind to turn carbon dioxide back into fuels. This release is only a coupe days after a major U.S. research team got their release out. The hunt is on. The researchers led […]
