Engineers at Stanford have developed a prototype single-fiber endoscope that improves the resolution of these much-sought-after instruments fourfold over existing designs. The advance could lead to an era of needle-thin, minimally invasive endoscopes able to view features out of reach of today´s instruments. Engineers at Stanford have demonstrated a high-resolution endoscope that is as thin as a human hair with a resolution four times better than previous devices of similar design....

2012-03-08 11:27:08

IBM researchers have developed a prototype optical chip, called Holey Optochip, with the ability to transfer a terabit of data per second, which could enhance the power of supercomputers, such as those found in the Power 775 and Blue Gene systems from IBM. The chip is a parallel optical transceiver consisting of both a transmitter and a receiver that is designed to handle the large amount of data created and transmitted over corporate and consumer networks as a result of new applications...


Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
