American Institute of Physics New, enhanced security of data storage and transmission via optical 'marked ghost imaging' technology developed at the National University of Singapore "Ghost imaging" sounds like the spooky stuff of frivolous fiction, but it's an established technique for reconstructing hi-res images of objects partly obscured by clouds or smoke. Now a group of researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is applying the same idea in reverse to securing...

Berkeley Lab scientists and colleagues will create an advanced extreme-ultraviolet microscope Moore´s Law, hardly a law but undeniably a persistent trend, says that every year and a half, the number of transistors that fit on a chip roughly doubles. It´s why electronics — from smart phones to flat screens, from MP4 players to movie cameras, from tablets to supercomputers — grow ever more varied, powerful, and compact, but also ever less expensive. Whether the trend...

Since 2000, John Pendry's work on metamaterials has been at the van guard of efforts to create a perfect image "“ images with perfect resolution that can stem from light being moved in odd directions to create, among other tricks of the light, the illusion of invisibility. One exciting development was Pendry's theoretically perfect work on negative refraction, which offered the possibility of lenses that could create images with resolution not possible with conventional lenses. But this...

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, are reporting a new way of creating computer chips that could revitalize optical lithography, a patterning technique that dominates modern integrated circuits manufacturing. By combining metal lenses that focus light through the excitation of electrons - or plasmons - on the lens' surface with a "flying head" that resembles the stylus on the arm of an old-fashioned LP turntable and is similar to those used in hard disk drives, the...

  • A stinking tobacco.
  • Offal; waste animal product; organic matter unfit for consumption.
This word comes from the Spanish 'mondongo,' tripe, entrails.
