The University of Hertfordshire to meet regional electronics needs

06.02.2008
The University of Hertfordshire is to expand its role as a twenty-first century, business-facing university through a new link with the regional electronics industry.

It is to join forces with Cambridge Network to become the regional hub for the Eastern Region of the Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network (EKTN).

The EKTN is charged with establishing a network of companies in the electronics industry to facilitate best practice and a community rich with collaborative players.

The new relationship between the university, Cambridge Network and EKTN aims to establish a vibrant network of companies in pursuit of growth through innovation across North London, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex.

The network also plans to devise a fully searchable listing of UK electronics companies to promote knowledge transfer and networking and to establish regional and national programmes of events covering emerging technologies and good business practice relating to the electronics industry.

“The University of Hertfordshire is a model of a twenty-first university – business-facing and business-like approach. The university is building on its past success through an ambitious forward plan for 2007-2012 to deliver its vision.”

Ashley Evans, CEO EKTN added: “The Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network is absolutely delighted that the University of Hertfordshire and Cambridge Network are collaborating to deliver the regional EKTN for the East of England region.

Each region within the UK has very differing strengths, and we’re sure that the region will combine entrepreneurial flair with innovative electronic designs to create a vibrant regional network capable of delivering new product ideas into the market. This will be a great network in which to learn and gain inspiration. Companies involved in developing innovative products should get involved today!”

Im Focus: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
