SMCs - new revolutionary graphene based energy devices

Nanotek Instruments and its subsidiary Angstron Materials developed a new graphene-based energy storage device - something between a battery and a supercapacitor. The new device is called graphene surface-enabled lithium ion-exchanging cells, or surface-mediated cells (SMCs).

Nanotek says that even the first generation devices (which aren't optimized yet) feature fast recharge cycles - and already outperform both supercapacitors and lithium-ion batteries. Recharge time is 10 times… Continue

Copper can be used to replace Iridium in OLEDs - and make them cheaper

Researchers from RIKEN (Japan) developed a new efficient copper complex that can be used to replace Iridium phosphors in OLEDs - and would be much cheaper (copper is about 1/2000 cheaper than Iridium):

Spintronics and Staintronics to enable ultra low power ICs that do not require batteries

energy - in fact it could run merely by tapping the ambient energy from the environment.

The energy dissipated can be as low as 0.4 attojoules, or about a billionth of a billionth of a joule. So this design could create an extremely low-power, yet high-density, non-volatile magnetic logic and memory system. The processors would be well suited for implantable medical devices and could run on energy harvested from the patient's body motion. They also could be incorporated into… Continue

Electron microscopic detection of nanoparticles in cells (Karlsruhe)

Nanoparticles are frequently used as additives in food and articles of daily use which necessitates studies of possible adverse effects on biological systems. In this context, the Laboratory for Electron Microscopy at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is recruiting a PhD student for an interdisciplinary project concerned with the detection of nanoparticles in cells. The PhD candidate with a Diplom/Master in physics is expected to use advanced electron microscopic techniques for… Continue

PhD/PostDoc position in Colloidal Simulation at the Chair for Process Systems Engineering at Technische Universität München


Mechanistic modelling of restructuring behaviour of colloidal aggregates

Colloidal particles are submicron particles which are usually suspended in a continuous phase (liquid or gas). They have unique properties due to their high ration of surface area to volume. The Priority Programme “Colloidal Process Engineering” (SPP 1273)… Continue

Toshiba to use MRAM as cache for HDD and NAND

It seems that Toshiba plans to use MRAM as cache for both NAND and HDDs devices.
Toshiba hasn't given up on the idea of having a full MRAM memory device - replacing HDD/NAND/DRAM altogether, but using it as a cache can be a step towards this goal:
