Seeing infrared: Sandia’s nanoantennas help detectors see more heat, less noise

Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories researchers developed tiny, gold antennas to help cameras and sensors that “see” heat deliver clearer pictures of thermal infrared radiation for everything from stars and galaxies to people, buildings and items requiring security. The new nanoantenna-enabled detector can boost the signal of a thermal infrared camera by up to three times and improve image quality by reducing dark current, a major component of image noise, by 10 to 100 times.

Paramagnetic Spins Take Electrons for a Ride, Produce Electricity from Heat

North Carolina State University

Local thermal perturbations of spins in a solid can convert heat to energy even in a paramagnetic material – where spins weren’t thought to correlate long enough to do so. This effect, “paramagnon drag thermopower,” converts a temperature difference into an electrical voltage.

Argonne explores how ants, bees, and fruit flies can be the next big buzz in artificial intelligence

Argonne National Laboratory

The ability to learn and adapt in real time is a central feature of biological systems. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory are exploring the use of neuromorphic computer chips that demonstrate this versatility to enhance our ability to efficiently process information in space and in other extreme environments.
