Tiny Transistors Developed For Extreme Environs
2014-03-20 10:29:28

University of Utah University of Utah electrical engineers fabricated the smallest plasma transistors that can withstand high temperatures and ionizing radiation found in a nuclear reactor. Such transistors someday might enable smartphones that take and collect medical X-rays on a battlefield, and devices to measure air quality in real time. "These plasma-based electronics can be used to control and guide robots to conduct tasks inside the nuclear reactor," says Massood Tabib-Azar, a...

Case Western Reserve University Makes Nanodiamonds In Ambient Conditions
2013-10-21 09:19:46

Case Western Reserve University Opens door for flexible electronics, implants and more Instead of having to use tons of crushing force and volcanic heat to forge diamonds, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have developed a way to cheaply make nanodiamonds on a lab bench at atmospheric pressure and near room temperature. The nanodiamonds are formed directly from a gas and require no surface to grow on. The discovery holds promise for many uses in technology and...
