  1. Competing Sensors Crave Human Contact | EE TimesRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 9, 2017 | EETimes

    PARIS While CMOS imagers and infrared are well established as sensors in smartphones, today's $64 million question is whether they will make room for radar and ultrasound inside handsets and, by extension, IoT devices. And if so, what roles will they play? The Mobile World Congress last week in Barcelona showcased a new generation of sensors and sensor fusion technologies, reflecting the intensifying competition among tech companies to create a new human-machine interface -- going beyond touch.

    Dec 7, 2016 | EETimes

    SAN FRANCISCO Ali Javey, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Berkeley, likes to describe his team's wearable electronics project as "big data of the human body." Today's wearable sensors are already tracking a user's physical activities and vital signs.

  4. One-Nanometer Transistor Demonstrated | EE TimesRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 13, 2016 | EETimes

    Carbon nanotubes have been used in experimental transistors for decades, but always as the channel for the transistor. Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, Calif., on the other hand, use the carbon nanotube as the gate, allowing them to claim the world's smallest transistor.

    Perhaps off-topic, but speaking of ungainly things flying, one of my friends back in the aerospace days used to say that the F4 Phantom jet was proof that given big enough engines, even a brick can fly! @Elizabeth: One of my favorite quotes I heard regarding these early days and the starting of Microsoft from one of the Apple sales reps. "In 100 mile an hour winds, even turkeys can fly."

  7. Perovskite Discovery Promises Big Efficiency BoostRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 8, 2016 | EETimes

    Solar cells using perovskite materials are inexpensive and easy to fabricate and the efficiency at which they convert photons to electricity has increased more rapidly than any other material to date, starting at 3% in 2009 and rising to 22% today. A team at the Molecular Foundry and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis, both at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory , used atomic force microscopy image of the surface of a perovskite solar cell to show a new path to much greater efficiency from manipulating the individual grain boundaries.
