Robotic lightning bugs take flight

Inspired by fireflies, researchers create insect-scale robots that can emit light when they fly, which enables motion tracking and communication. Fireflies that light up dusky backyards on warm summer evenings…

Recovered by Robo Ray

Giant arsenals of unexploded ordinance are sitting on the ocean floor, lost in battle or dumped as waste. The risky job of detecting these underwater hazards is currently given to…

Photonic integrated erbium doped amplifiers reach commercial performance

Boosting light power revolutionizes communications and autopilots. Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) are devices that can provide gain to the optical signal power in optical fibers, often used in long-distance communication…

First European exascale supercomputer coming to Jülich

EuroHPC JU, the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking, has selected Forschungszentrum Jülich – a partner in Germany’s Gauss Centre for Supercomputing – to operate the first next-generation European supercomputer….

The potential of p-computers

Collaborative research published in Nature Electronics shows promise of probabilistic computers. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) has created a crisis in computing and a significant…

Building up new data-storage memory

Scientists from the Institute of Industrial Science at The University of Tokyo fabricated three-dimensional vertically formed field-effect transistors to produce high-density data storage devices by ferroelectric gate insulator and atomic-layer-deposited…
