computersMRAM data retention improved from 1 hour to 1 year with other gains

Spin Transfer Technologies has developed vastly improved MRAM memory using its unique Precessional Spin Current (PSC™) structure. The results from advanced testing of the PSC structure confirm that it will increase the spin-torque efficiency of any MRAM device by 40-70 …

futureLarge amounts of high density MRAM data could enable pinhead size computers

new research from the University of New Hampshire will make computers the size of a pinhead a reality sooner than once thought. Researchers outline their proposed combination which would allow for a more stable perpendicular anisotropic energy (PMA), the key …

computer memoryAnother five quit trapped ion question Antrim computer

In May this year, IBM announced it was making such a device available for anyone to use over the internet. Its computer has five quantum bits, or qubits, so can only handle relatively small problems – but it’s programmable just …

computer memorySelf-arranging molecules could form the basis for efficient optoelectronic memory devices

A way to use weak molecular bonding interactions to create well-ordered and stable metal–organic monolayers with optoelectronic properties has been found by researchers from the RIKEN Surface and Interface Science Laboratory. The development could form the basis for the scalable …

computer memorySpacex Dragon lander could land on Mars with a mission under the NASA Discovery Program cost cap

One of Ames’ long standing science interests has been to robotically drill deeply into Mars’ subsurface environment (2 meters, or more) to investigate the habitability of that zone for past or extant life. Large, capable Mars landers would ease the …

Dr. David LeBlanc and Chris Popoff of Terrestrial Energy conducted an in-car interview regarding the use of nuclear power to make oilsands production more environmentally friendly. Their reactor is a Denatured Molten Salt Reactor called the “Integral Molten Salt Reactor”, …

germany13% of the World’s Adults want to Migrate to another country with top destinations USA, UK and Canada

Gallup – About 13% of the world’s adults — or more than 640 million people — say they would like to leave their country permanently. Roughly 150 million of them say they would like to move to the U.S. — …

computer memoryAtmospheric Breathing Electric Thruster for Planetary Exploration and Economical Radioisotope Power

1. This study will investigate the development of an atmosphere-breathing electric propulsion solar-powered vehicle to explore planets such as Mars. The vehicle would use atmospheric gas for propellant, eliminating the need to launch and carry the propellant from earth. The …

computer memoryQuantum Processor Hooks Up with Quantum Memory

Connecting a quantum processor with quantum memory could make it possible to perform complex calculations that are far beyond the power of conventional computers. Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have become the first to combine a quantum …

computer memoryNASA Offers $200 million for an Orbiting Gas Station

NASA has put out a call for a $200 million mission to show how to store and transfer rocket propellants in space. In-space refueling technology would allow smaller and cheaper rockets to be used for missions that would otherwise be …
