Taking the human out of manufacturing

The Chomerics Division of the Parker Hannifin Corporation Engineered Materials Group, which specialises in the development and application of electrically conductive and thermal interface materials, has announced the extension of its integrated assembly services.

NIST chip hints at quantum sensors of the future

A chip upon which laser light interacts with a tiny cloud of atoms has been devised by a team at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The idea is that it will serve as a miniature toolkit for measuring important quantities, such as length with quantum precision, with the hope the design could be mass-produced with existing technology.

Cadence expands Virtuoso Platform

Cadence Design Systems has introduced a number of significant enhancements to its Virtuoso custom IC design platform in a move designed to improve electronic system and IC design productivity.

Berkeley engineers say its built smallest volume, most efficient wireless nerve stimulator

In 2016, University of California, Berkeley, engineers demonstrated the first implanted, ultrasonic neural dust sensors, bringing closer the day when a Fitbit-like device could monitor internal nerves, muscles or organs in real time. Now, it says it has taken neural dust a step forward by building what it claims is the smallest volume, most efficient wireless nerve stimulator to date. 

First ever plasmomechanical oscillator

By taking advantage of the interplay between light, electrons on the surface of metals, and heat, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have created a plasmomechanical oscillator (PMO).

Liquid-in-liquid 3D printed structures

Scientists from the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a way to 3D print structures composed entirely of liquids. They envision their all-liquid material could be used to construct liquid electronics that power flexible, stretchable devices.

A different spin on superconductivity

A team of researchers has said it’s seen exotic superconductivity that relies on highly unusual electron interactions. While predicted to occur in other non-material systems, this type of behaviour has remained elusive.
