SUTD researchers together with international researchers to develop a 3D technology map which systematically compares optical sensors, providing a much needed benchmark to define the standards and track developments in this rapidly growing industry.
Forget the smart watch. Bring on the smart shirt. Researchers at UBC Okanagan's School of Engineering have developed a low-cost sensor that can be interlaced into textiles and composite materials. While the research is still new, the sensor may pave the way for smart clothing that can monitor human movement.
E-waste recycling is far below what it should be to reduce its impact on the environment and human health simply because it is not economically feasible. Researchers from Japan are working on a way to change that using pulsed power technology.
The invention uses magnets to record computer data which consume virtually zero energy, solving the dilemma of how to create faster data processing speeds without high energy costs. Today's data center servers consume between 2 to 5% of global electricity consumption, producing heat which needs more power to cool the servers. The problem is so acute services in the ocean in an effort to keep them cool and cut costs.
Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and their colleagues from Germany and the Netherlands have achieved material magnetization switching on the shortest timescales, at a minimal energy cost. They have thus developed a prototype of energy-efficient data storage devices.
In collaboration with researchers from Harvard University, researchers from the University of Würzburg have made an important step on the road to topological quantum computers. Now, they present their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature.
Collisions of lead nuclei take place under extreme physical conditions. Their course can be described using a model which assumes that the transforming, extremely hot matter -- the quark-gluon plasma -- flows in the form of hundreds of streaks. Until now, the 'fire streaks' seemed to be purely theoretical structures. However, the latest analysis of collisions of individual protons reinforces the hypothesis that they represent a real physical phenomenon.
DGIST Senior Researcher Changsoon Choi's team developed single-layer graphene based multifunctional transparent devices. Expected to be used in various devices such as electronics and skin-attachable devices with power generation and self-charging capability.
DGIST Professor Jae Eun Jang's team developed high frequency signal transmission line technology which maximizes carrier concentration of graphene using graphene-amorphous carbon junction structure.
Researchers have introduced a voltage-controlled topological spin switch for logic and memory devices, such as computer hard drives, that now use nanomagnetic mechanisms to store and manipulate information. Unlike silicon transistors, these devices require no energy to maintain their magnetic state: Energy is needed only for reading and writing information. The researchers' innovation greatly reduces the energy and heat used during such reading and writing processes, and may improve security, as well.
