University of Illinois On the road to smaller, high-performance electronics, University of Illinois researchers have smoothed one speed bump by shrinking a key, yet notoriously large element of integrated circuits. Three-dimensional rolled-up inductors have a footprint more than 100 times smaller without sacrificing performance. The researchers published their new design paradigm in the journal Nano Letters. “It´s a new concept for old technology,” said team leader...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers are attempting to create futuristic surgical gloves that can allow doctors to perform ultrasound scans through the tips of their fingers. Scientists have created devices that are capable of responding with high precision to the stresses and strains associated with touch and finger movement. In order to create these devices, they had to be able to mimic and recreate the intricate properties of the fingertips through using...


Word of the Day
monteith
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
