LONDON, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:Global Market for Cables, Insulators, and Towers Report and Database 2013-2017 Electricity demand is growing, and demand for cables, insulators and transmission towers is growing with it. However, a variety of distinct development paradigms are at play. While developing countries have primarily seen point-to-point radial distribution instead of intermeshed networks, many developed...

Topological insulators could exist in 6 new types not seen before Topological insulators — materials whose surfaces can freely conduct electrons even though their interiors are electrical insulators — have been of great interest to physicists in recent years because of unusual properties that may provide insights into quantum physics. But most analysis of such materials has had to rely on highly simplified models. Now, a team of researchers at MIT has performed a more detailed...

Article in 'AIP Advances' describes new topological insulator materials developed in China and US that may speed future semiconductor chips Imagine if the "information superhighway" had HOV lanes so that data could be stored, processed and disseminated many times faster than possible with today's electronics. Researchers in the United States and China have teamed to develop such a speedway for future devices, an exotic type of electrical conductor called a topological insulator (TI). In a...

Researchers in the College of Engineering at Oregon State University have made a significant advance in the function of metal-insulator-metal, or MIM diodes, a technology premised on the assumption that the speed of electrons moving through silicon is simply too slow. For the extraordinary speed envisioned in some future electronics applications, these innovative diodes solve problems that would not be possible with silicon-based materials as a limiting factor. The new diodes consist of...

University Of Washington It is well known to scientists that the three common phases of water – ice, liquid and vapor – can exist stably together only at a particular temperature and pressure, called the triple point. Also well known is that the solid form of many materials can have numerous phases, but it is difficult to pinpoint the temperature and pressure for the points at which three solid phases can coexist stably. Scientists now have made the first-ever accurate...

FDR25S power cable helps provide optimal solution for tight spaces in aerospace and military applications. Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) July 08, 2013 TE Connectivity (TE) announces the new FDR25S wire. This flexible diesel-resistant power cable is designed for commercial and military aerospace, military ground systems, and military marine industries. The highly flexible wire helps allow the cable to be bent and routed in extremely tight areas while helping to prevent wrinkling and cracking of...


Word of the Day
vermicular
  • Like a worm in form or movement; vermiform; tortuous or sinuous; also, writhing or wriggling.
  • Like the track or trace of a worm; appearing as if worm-eaten; vermiculate.
  • Marked with fine, close-set, wavy or tortuous lines of color; vermiculated.
  • A form of rusticated masonry which is so wrought as to appear thickly indented with worm-tracks.
This word ultimately comes from the Latin 'vermis,' worm.
