asiaCreating nearly perfect meter sized graphene one hundred times faster

0
Researchers have achieved a leap forward in graphene production, from a technique that synthesizes a few square centimeters of single-crystal graphene in a couple of hours, to an optimized method that allows the creation of an almost-perfect (over 99.9 percent …

imagingEngineering for athletes to exceed their limits

0
MIT 3-Sigma Sports aims to solve the biggest engineering problems across sports. The program connecting students and faculty with alumni and industry partners who work together to improve athletic performance by using engineering to enhance endurance, speed, accuracy, and agility …

camerasSupertiny cameras could shrink from pill size to dust size

0
The pill-sized cameras in today’s mobile phones may seem miraculously tiny, given that a decade ago the smallest cameras available for retail sale were the size of a pack of cards. Ali Hajimiri of the California Institute of Technology will …

artificial intelligenceCommercial AI will start sorting through ISIS intelligence data within 6 months

0
Within six months the US military will start using commercial AI algorithms to sort through its masses of intelligence data on the Islamic State. “We will put an algorithm into a combat zone before the end of this calendar year, …

imagingMonitoring the world with microsatellites and open source data

0
Planet Labs uses 149 microsatellites to monitor the pulse of our planet with daily news and imagery, stories, and tech updates. Current satellite imaging only allows us to look at various disconnected locations. Planet’s always-on, daily imagery provides a global …

beyond cmosSeeing The Invisible With A Graphene-CMOS Integrated Device

0
EU Graphene Flagship researchers from ICFO (The Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona) have shown that it is possible to integrate graphene into a CMOS integrated circuit. In their paper published in the journal Nature Photonics they combine this graphene-CMOS …

3d3D imaging with centimeter precision through walls by using Wifi signals

0
Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a holographic imaging process that depicts the radiation of a Wi-Fi transmitter to generate three-dimensional images of the surrounding environment. Industrial facility operators could use this to track objects as …

0
Slava Turyshev of NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory proposes to study a mission to the deep regions outside the solar system that will exploit the remarkable optical properties of the Solar Gravitational Lens (SGL) focus to effectively build an astronomical telescope …

imagingSoftbank Vision Fund has Saudi Arabia backing and will soon have UAE

0
Softbank is about to sell 25 percent of ARM — roughly $8 billion — to a new, Saudi-backed $100 billion investment fund, the Financial Times reported today. The Japanese shelled out $32 billion to purchased ARM only six months ago. …

artificial intelligenceCasimir forces measured between silicon nanostructures

0
Casimir forces are of fundamental interest because they originate from quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field. Apart from controlling this force via the optical properties of materials a number of novel geometries have been proposed to generate repulsive and/or non-monotonic …
