For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequisite for finding answers to the most challenging qu ...
At a ceremony today at ESO's Headquarters four contracts were signed for major components of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) that ESO is building. These were for: the casting of the telescope's giant secondary and tertiary mirrors, awarded to SCHOTT; the supply of mirror cells to support ...
Carbon-based memory materials promise to revolutionise how data is stored and to take computing to a new age in terms of speed, efficiency and power. Improved data storage represents the backbone of the knowledge economy, as well as modern industry, business and multimedia. Creating non-volatil ...
Chip scale high precision measurements of physical quantities such as temperature, pressure and refractive index have become common with nanophotonics and nanoplasmonics resonance cavities. As excellent transducers to convert small variations in the local refractive index into measurable spectral sh ...
It has been said that spending too much time on a smartphone can negatively impact brain development or even cause damage to the neck. But don't toss yours in the bin just yet. An EU-funded project is working on smartphones' health cred by developing 'Sniffphone' - a module capable o ...

Researchers from the Graphene Flagship, working at the AMBER centre in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in collaboration with researchers from University of Siegen, Germany, and University of Vienna, Austria, have demonstrated ultrafast and highly sensitive gas sensors using platinum seleni ...
As of the model year 2017, BMZ GmbH offers a warranty of four years on e-bike batteries to the customers of the bicycle purchasing cooperative. For this purpose, BMZ and ZEG have signed a service agreement. According to the agreement, BMZ offers a warranty to the buyers of Z ...
Wearable sensors that monitor heart rate, activity, skin temperature and other variables can reveal a lot about what is going on inside a person, including the onset of infection, inflammation and even insulin resistance, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medic ...
Scientists have spent decades searching for a safe alternative to the flammable liquid electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries.Now Stanford University researchers have identified nearly two-dozen solid electrolytes that could someday replace the volatile liquids used in smartphones, laptops and o ...
Bigger is always better, isn’t it? That’s not necessarily the case when it comes to specifying an AC/DC power supply. One of the most important aspects of designing a power supply into a system is ensuring that it is sized appropriately. Erring on the side of caution by trying to ensure that th ...
TT Electronics has announced that its sensors will be used in the NASA mission to the planet Mars in 2020. The robustness of the company’s Hall-effect sensors enables them to withstand the harsh environments found on Mars. The Hall-effect sensors from TT Electronics are key components in NASA’s ...
Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions showcases three innovative sensor-based solutions in Las Vegas, USA. The devices help improve comfort, convenience and accountability, and new extension boards simplify the development of Internet of Things (IoT) applications.“Sensor-based connected devices and  ...
Designed for precision angle measurement, Contelec’s Vert-X 48E series non-contacting magnetic encoder is aimed at applications in agriculture, mining or construction equipment, and other applications where extreme environmental conditions exist and accurate control is required for steering, guiding ...
In order to help social-fitness fans stay motivated, STMicroelectronics has introduced smart motion sensors that enable always-on tracking applications to run for longer and record progress more accurately. These sensors, the LIS2DS12 3-axis 'pico' accelerometer, LSM6DSL/M 6-axis inerti ...
Instead of ordering batteries by the pack, we might get them by the ream in the future. Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York have created a bacteria-powered battery on a single sheet of paper that can power disposable electronics. The manufacturing technique reduces fab ...
