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. But transistors based on semiconductors can only get so small. “At the rate the current technology is progressing, in 10 or 20 years, they won’t be able to get any smaller,” said physicist Yoke Khin Yap of Michigan Technological University. “Also, semiconductors have another disadvantage: they waste a...

Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres Platinum-nickel nano-octahedra save 90 percent platinum Efficient, robust and economic catalyst materials hold the key to achieving a breakthrough in fuel cell technology. Scientists from Jülich and Berlin have developed a material for converting hydrogen and oxygen to water using a tenth of the typical amount of platinum that was previously required. With the aid of state-of-the-art electron microscopy, the researchers...

Based on research, both the ATM buttons, and the public toilet seats have the same pseudomonades and bacillus bacteria. These germs may not kill people but will cause them serious stomach distress. Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 15, 2013 The U Power wallet is for the in-trend minimalists. It features a slim design to fit in any pocket, RFID blocking fabric to secure bankcards and passports from skimming thieves, innovative stylus pen functionality to operate capacitive and resistive touch...

Word of the Day
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
