electronicsGraphene superlattices could be used for superconducting transistors

Researchers created a “superlattice” of two graphene sheets stacked together — not precisely on top of each other, but rotated ever so slightly, at a “magic angle” of 1.1 degrees. The hexagonal honeycomb pattern is offset slightly, creating a precise …

chinaBoring electrical power distribution could give China’s Navy railguns and other huge advantages

The US is moving ahead with deployment of combat lasers up to 300 kilowatts in power over the next 3-5 years versus 32 megajoule railguns. Only one megawatt of power is needed for combat lasers versus tens of megawatts for …

electronicsBattery-free wireless RFID sensor from graphene oxide for Internet of Things Applications

Researchers have a design that layers graphene oxide, to create flexible heterostructure humidity sensors for remote sensing. * layer by layer printing allows for scalable and mass production at a very low cost. * the first printable technology where several …

air forceGallium Nitride transferred to Flexible Substrate for better antennas, communication and wearable electronics

The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has demonstrated a new method to transfer gallium nitride (GaN) on a flexible substrate, a development that could lead to improved communications and radar systems, as well as wearable electronics. Next generation military …

electronicsKey component for quantum computers miniaturized by 1000 times

The Microwave circulator is a key part of many quantum computer implementations and researchers has been miniaturized by 1000 times. Making parts like these smaller will help enable quantum computers with millions of qubits. Above – Lead author of the …

darpaDARPA leading electronics revolution to go beyond printed circuit boards with modular chiplets

DARPA has kicked off the Common Heterogeneous Integration and Intellectual Property (IP) Reuse Strategies program. “The CHIPS program is part of DARPA’s much larger effort, the Electronics Resurgence Initiative, in which we are striving to build an electronics community that …

electronicsAlliance Rubber funds research for graphene infused rubber bands

Arkansas Business reports Alliance Rubber of Hot Springs recently signed an agreement with University of Sussex professor Alan Dalton to study how the compound graphene could be used in rubber products. Alliance Rubber intends to help determine exactly how this …

electronicsElectrons in Graphene can become superballistic which start a new wave of physics

In some high-quality materials, like graphene, electrons can travel micron distances without scattering, improving the conductivity by orders of magnitude. This so-called ballistic regime, imposes the maximum possible conductance for any normal metal, which is defined by the Landauer-Buttiker formalism. …

electronicsCloser to Flash Memory Successor

New resistive random access memory (RRAM), could form the basis of a better kind of nonvolatile computer memory, where data is retained even when the power is off. Nonvolatile memory is already familiar as the basis for flash memory in …
