World Record in Data Transmission With Smart Circuits

World Record in Data Transmission With Smart Circuits

Fewer cords, smaller antennas and quicker video transmission. This may be the result of a new type of microwave circuit that was designed at Chalmers University of Technology. The research team behind the circuits currently holds an attention-grabbing record. Tomorrow the results will be presented at a conference in San Diego.   Every time we […]

Linking Television and the Internet

Linking Television and the Internet

In the “LinkedTV” project, researchers are seamlessly connecting TV offerings with the Internet. Audiences will benefit from an informative and personalized viewing experience.   The panel discussion is getting heated — but what exactly is in the new proposed law that the experts on TV are arguing about so vigorously? Up until now, spontaneous questions […]

Improving Optical Communications With New Device

Improving Optical Communications With New Device

Modulators are key components within optical fiber networks and serve to transfer information from an electrical current to a signal suitable for optical fibers. They function by turning a light beam on and off quickly and the faster they can do this, the more data that can be transmitted.   An increase in data traffic […]

Mobile Robots Support Airplane Manufacturers

Mobile Robots Support Airplane Manufacturers

The robots move at walking speed along airplane components; in doing so, it applies a sealant against corrosion in equal measure. The mobile assistant is surrounded by technical workers who install, drill, and test. Admittedly this scenario is still a glimpse of the future — but in just a few years, it should be reality […]

Mobile Device Can Sense a Stranger’s Touch

Mobile Device Can Sense a Stranger’s Touch

Passwords, gestures and fingerprint scans are all helpful ways to keep a thief from unlocking and using a cell phone or tablet. Cybersecurity researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have gone a step further. They’ve developed a new security system that continuously monitors how a user taps and swipes a mobile device. If the […]

Complex Systems May Be Highly Controllable

Complex Systems May Be Highly Controllable

We don’t often think of them in these terms, but our brains, global financial markets and groups of friends are all examples of different kinds of complex networks or systems. And unlike the kind of system that exists in your car that has been intentionally engineered for humans to use, these systems are convoluted and […]

Trapped by an Avalanche, Saved by an App

Trapped by an Avalanche, Saved by an App

An app developed at Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology makes it possible for skiers with smartphones to find people buried in the snow after an avalanche.   For those buried under the weight of an avalanche, every minute is precious. A person saved from a snow mass within 15 minutes has a 90 per […]

Magnet for Fast and Cheap Data Storage

Magnet for Fast and Cheap Data Storage

Professor Rasing, physicist at Radboud University Nijmegen, came up with a new synthetic material for optical data storage.   Optical data storage does not require expensive magnetic materials as synthetic alternatives work just as well. This is the finding of an international team from York, Berlin and Nijmegen, published Thursday February 27 in Applied Physics […]
