Optical and Electrical Bistability Study Sheds Light on Next-Gen High Speed Data Transfer

Today, electrical bistable devices are the foundation of digital electronics, but the bandwidth of these electronic computers is limited by the signal delay of time constants important to electronic logic operations. In an attempt to mitigate these problems, scientists have considered the development of an optical digital computer. This week, in the Journal of Applied Physics, researchers present their findings regarding the optical and electrical bistability of a single transistor operated at room temperature.

Mobile Fabrication Laboratories to bring STEM Learning to Schools in the Los Angeles Region


Four new mobile fabrication laboratories (fab labs) to help students build science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills will soon make their debut in Los Angeles County. California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) together with Toyota and the W.M. Keck Foundation came together to create the fab labs, which will become part of a global network of nearly 900 mobile labs that share common equipment and software.

Arkansas University Joins New Department of Homeland Security-Funded Consortium


The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has been named a priority partner in a new Department of Homeland Security-funded national consortium. The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate will award the consortium a $3.85 million grant for its first operating year in a 10-year grant period to create the Center of Excellence for Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis (CINA).

Putting Smart Weapons to the Test


A University of Delaware professor’s small business is helping the Air Force bring its testing technology up to speed with the rapid advance of infrared sensor technology – research that could help today's troops take advantage of a new generation of weapons.



Chemists Make Playdough/Lego-Like Hybrid to Create Tiny Building Blocks


Playdough and Legos are among the most popular childhood building blocks. But what could you use if you wanted to create something really small—a structure less than the width of a human hair? It turns out, a team of chemists has found, this can be achieved by creating particles that have both playdough and Lego traits.
