With the explosive growth of bandwidth demand in telecommunications networks, experts are continually seeking new ways to transmit increasingly large amounts of data in the quickest and cheapest ways possible. Photonic devices — which convert light to electricity and vice versa — offer an energy-efficient alternative to traditional copper network links for information transmission. Unfortunately, these devices are also almost always prohibitively pricey.
University of Washington (UW) scientists have built the thinnest-known LED that can be used as a source of light energy in electronics.
There seems to be no end to the claims that the data storage technology of the future has just been found. But that hasn’t stopped one researcher from suggesting that his new discoveries could lead to read-write speeds several thousand times faster than anything now imagined for fancy magnetics or spintronics. Continue reading “Orbital computing: An atomic-level tech for future computers” »
The era of remotely controlled aircrafts started in the beginning of the 20th century. Drone refers to unmanned aerial vehicles (abbreviated as UAV) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), which are used in many different areas starting from military aviation and even agriculture.
It is uncommon that a company founded only few years ago suddenly becomes widely known not only in the country it was based in, but also in the international arena. This story happened with a high-tech company Brolis Semiconductors founded in 2011, and currently it is well-known not only in Lithuania, but also globally – from Japan to USA. The company specializes in designing semiconductor lasers, laser diodes, and other products. What makes these lasers special? Continue reading “Three Brothers – One Story of Luck (1)” »
As high-power lasers have become increasingly important in scientific research, engineers have been working to build more powerful beam emitters. Now Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California is taking it to the extreme with a new laser project. If the High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS) lives up to its promise, it will be able to produce a laser with over 1 petawatt of power in extremely fast pulses. Continue reading “Petawatt ‘Death Star’ laser prepares to investigate quantum mechanics, chemistry, and more” »
Google has just unveiled Project Tango, a smartphone with built-in 3D computer vision technology. Think of it as a smartphone with built-in Kinect functionality — but rather than enable Leap-like gesture control, the computer vision tech is used to create a full 3D map of your current environment. At its most basic, you might use Tango to create a map of your house, or a 3D model of your favorite antique vase or your motorbike. Continue reading “Creating 3D maps with Google’s Tango smartphone” »
The only tool that helps blind people to navigate in space is the “white cane”. However, the latter not only does not meet the needs of the ever-changing modern society but hardly helps not to get lost in urban environment. When using the “white cane” blind people experience considerable inconveniences when trying to get from point A to point B, overcome obstacles, or identify the objects on the road.
The idea to perform data processing with light, without relying on any electronic components, has been around for quite some time. In fact, necessary components such as optical transistors are available. However, up to now they have not gained a lot of attention from computer companies. Continue reading “Switching with single photons: this is a step towards the quantum computer” »
With the introduction of curved smartphones, flexible electronic goods are gradually moving to the center stages of various markets. Flexible display technology is the culmination of the latest, cutting-edge electric cell device technology. Scientists have now developed a bendable organic carbon nano compound-based 64bit memory. It shows improved data performance by limiting the direction of electric currents. Continue reading “Breakthrough development of flexible 1D-1R memory cell array” »
Device called The Vinci from the Lithuanian company of engineering solutions Aedilis was awarded in the prestigious commercial product design awards iF product design award 2014. Design for his unique product that has no analogues in Lithuania was developed by a student Denis Orlenok.
