Super-fast internet with nanophotonic device

Groundbreaking new technology allows super-fast internet by harnessing twisted light beams to carry more data and process it faster. Broadband fiber-optics carry information on pulses of light, at the speed of light, through optical fibers. But the way the light is encoded at one end and processed at the other affects data speeds. This world-first Read more about Super-fast internet with nanophotonic device[…]

Graphene oxide nano-compressor controlled with heat

Graphene is a sheet of carbon that is only one atom thick, and it has drawn worldwide attention as a new material. A research group from Kumamoto University, Japan has discovered that pressure can be generated by simply stacking graphene oxide nanosheets, a material that closely resembles graphene. They also found that the pressure can Read more about Graphene oxide nano-compressor controlled with heat[…]
