GRAPHENE

From an electron’s point of view, graphene must be a hair-raising thrill ride. For years, scientists have observed that electrons can blitz through graphene at velocities approaching the speed of light, far faster than...

Larry Hardesty | MIT News Office The transmission control protocol, or TCP, which manages traffic on the internet, was first proposed in 1974. Some version of TCP still regulates data transfer in most major data...

Rob Matheson | MIT News Office Press Inquiries Residential solar power is on a sharp rise in the United States as photovoltaic systems become cheaper and more powerful for homeowners. A 2012 study by the U.S....

Larry Hardesty | MIT News Office Press Inquiries New Resource For Optical Chips The Semiconductor Industry Association has estimated that at current rates of increase, computers’ energy requirements will exceed the world’s total power output by 2040. Using...

Peter Dizikes | MIT News Office Press Inquiries In some areas of the U.S., medical providers consistently order more tests and treatments for patients than providers do elsewhere — a fact that has generated considerable public...

ECOLE POLYTECHNIQUE FÉDÉRALE DE LAUSANNE Measuring time without a clock EPFL scientists have been able to measure the ultrashort time delay in electron photoemission without using a clock. The discovery has important implications for fundamental research...

ECOLE POLYTECHNIQUE FÉDÉRALE DE LAUSANNE Researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonic Materials and Fibre Devices, which is run by Fabien Sorin, have come up with a simple and innovative technique for drawing or imprinting complex,...

William Bentley, University of Maryland and Gregory Payne, University of Maryland Microelectronics has transformed our lives. Cellphones, earbuds, pacemakers, defibrillators – all these and more rely on microelectronics’ very small electronic designs and components. Microelectronics...

If you visit the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) exhibition, now at the Queensland Museum, you’ll see the recreation of a moment when the scientist who saw the first results indicating discovery of the Higgs...

Now that 3D printing has made it easier to generate custom-made prosthetics, bioengineers are looking ahead at manufacturing actual cellular material. Such technology could be the basis for personalized biomedical devices; tissue-engineered skin, cartilage,...

TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF MUNICH (TUM) Missions at sea, in mountainous regions or close to skyscrapers are extremely risky for helicopter pilots. The turbulent air flows near oil rigs, ships, cliffs and tall buildings can throw...
