Climate change mitigation technologies to avert one of the biggest existential threat

This period is now the warmest in the history of modern civilization. The global surface temperature has increased faster since 1970 than in any other 50-year period over a least the last 2,000 years. For example, temperatures during the most recent decade (2011–2020) exceed those of the most recent multi-century …

Spintronic materials

Spin electronics (also called spintronics, magnetoelectronics or magnetronics) is “A branch of physics concerned with the storage and transfer of information by means of electron spins in addition to electron charge as in conventional electronics.” Spin-based electronics focuses on devices whose functionality is based primarily on the spin degree of …

Spintronics for seamless integration of electronic, photonic, magnetoelectronic and quantum multifunctionality on a single device

Information and communications devices such as computers, smart phone, storage units, MP3/ MP4 players, and the worldwide system of computer networks (internet) are fundamental things in every home. The integrated circuit was inventedby Jack Kilby in 1958 and can be considered as the heart andbrain of the modern electronics devices. It …

DARPA ERI developing breakthrough U.S. national electronics capability for DOD missions to secure its national security

In 1965 R&D Director at Fairchild (and later Intel co-founder) Gordon Moore predicted continued systemic declines in cost and increase in performance of integrated circuits in his paper “Cramming more components onto integrated circuits.” These trends have underwritten the ongoing microelectronics revolution. “Moore’s Law has set the technology community on a …

Quantum biosensensors could detect SARS-CoV-2

Quantum technology takes advantage of scientific phenomena that are only accessible on the smallest of scales, such as the concept of superposition: where a system exists in a combination of possible states rather than in a single one. This unique characteristic of quantum systems is quite fragile—when a quantum system …
