A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

Engineers develop world's most efficient semiconductor for thermal management

3 hours 53 min ago
Working to address 'hotspots' in computer chips that degrade their performance, engineers have developed a new semiconductor material, defect-free boron arsenide, that is more effective at drawing and dissipating waste heat than any other known semiconductor or metal materials.

Researchers make and test atom-thick boron's unique domains

Tue, 2018-07-17 02:15
Defects are often observed when making borophene, the single-atom form of boron, but unlike in other two-dimensional materials, these mismatched lattices can assemble into ordered structures that preserve the material's metallic nature and electronic properties.

Electronic stickers to streamline large-scale 'internet of things'

Tue, 2018-07-17 02:15
Researchers have developed a new fabrication method that makes tiny, thin-film electronic circuits peelable from a surface. The technique not only eliminates several manufacturing steps and the associated costs, but also allows any object to sense its environment or be controlled through the application of a high-tech sticker.

Fri, 2018-07-06 18:47
Researchers have designed and successfully developed a high-power, silicon-nanowire thermoelectric generator which, at a thermal difference of only 5ºC, could drive various IoT devices autonomously in the near future.

Ultra-thin sensor makes inflammation testing and curing 30 times faster

Fri, 2018-07-06 18:46
Researchers have developed a real-time ultraflexible sensor that makes inflammation testing and curing 30 times faster.

Heat-conducting crystals could help computer chips keep their cool

Fri, 2018-07-06 00:13
As consumers demand smaller, faster and more powerful electronic devices that draw more current and generate more heat, the issue of heat management is reaching a bottleneck. Researchers have created a potential solution -- boron arsenide crystals with high thermal conductivity, which might be used in future electronics to help keep devices from overheating.
