For decades, electronic devices have been getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller. It's now possible—even routine—to place millions of transistors on a single silicon chip. Scientists have experimented with different materials and designs for transistors to address these issues, always using semiconductors like silicon.
Google is launching Internet-beaming antennas into the stratosphere aboard giant, jellyfish-shaped balloons with the lofty goal of getting the entire planet online. Eighteen months in the works, the top-secret project was announced in New Zealand, where up to 50 volunteer households are already beginning to receive the Internet briefly on their home computers via translucent helium balloons that sail by on the wind 12 miles above Earth.
This is a 10x photograph of long fluorescent ribbons constructed from thousands of semiconducting quantum dot nanoparticles, which are about 10,000x smaller in diameter than a human hair. Using a fluorescence technique, Jonathan T. Pham and Catherine Russell of the University of Massachusetts Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, Amherst, Mass. were able to produce their Image of Distinction.
Intel joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in a National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) partnership, along with 10 other industry leaders: Cisco, HP, HyTrust, McAfee, Microsoft, RSA, Splunk, Symantec, Vanguard and Venafi.
Hidden in a tiny tile of interwoven DNA is a message. The message is simple, but decoding it unlocks the secret of dynamic nanoscale assembly. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have devised a dynamic and reversible way to assemble nanoscale structures and used it to encrypt a Morse code message.
