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” »

A single-atom engine breaks the laws of physics and progress in quantum computing

atomic engine

A new invention from Germany’s University of Mainz is not only the world’s smallest engine by an enormous margin, it may have broken a theoretical limit for engine efficiency. The device, a so-called “atomic engine,” produces power thanks to the movements of just a single atom trapped and manipulated. It’s an incredible achievement that, while not particularly useful for engineering in the short term, could revolutionize our understanding of the quantum world. Plus, it’s really neat.
