Engineers develop material that could speed telecommunications

In a study published July 10 on Nature Photonics’s website, Serdar Kocaman, an electrical engineering Ph.D. candidate, and Chee Wei Wong, associate professor of mechanical engineering, demonstrated how an optical nanostructure can be built that controls the way light bounces off it. When light travels, it bends—in technical terms, it disperses and incurs “phase,” an […]

IBM develops ‘instantaneous’ memory, 100x faster than flash

IBM develops ‘instantaneous’ memory, 100x faster than flash! You’ve got to hand it to IBM’s engineers. They drag themselves into work after their company’s 100th birthday party, pop a few Alka-Seltzers and then promptly announce yet another seismic invention. This time it’s a new kind of phase change memory (PCM) that reads and writes 100 […]
