ANN ARBOR — Researchers have engineered a material that could lead to a new generation of computing devices, packing in more computing power while consuming a fraction of the energy that today’s electronics require.
Berkeley, Calif., Dec. 2012 — Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed an elegant and powerful new microscale actuator that can flex like a tiny … Continue reading →
New approach is a promising first step toward the development of tiny devices that harvest electrical energy from everyday tasks Imagine charging your phone as you walk, thanks to a paper-thin generator embedded in the sole of your shoe. This … Continue reading →
“The nation that controls magnetism will control the universe,” famed fictional detective Dick Tracy predicted back in 1935. Probably an overstatement, but there’s little doubt the nation that leads the development of advanced magnetoelectronic or “spintronic” devices is going to … Continue reading →
