The World’s Smallest Diode Thanks To Nanotechnology. In world of electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) resistance to the flow of current in one direction, and high (ideally infinite) resistance in the other. The diode is a critical part of […]

What Slugs Can Teach Us About Airplane Deicing. For the frequent flyers out there, the thought of sitting on the tarmac while a team of workers sprays deicing chemicals all over the outside of your airplane is an unpleasant but necessary reality. Ice on the wings or fuselage can add so much weight to the plane […]

Faster Cheaper Computer Chips Using DNA Building Blocks. Electronics manufacturers constantly hunt for ways to make faster, cheaper computer chips, often by cutting production costs or by shrinking component sizes. Now, researchers report that DNA, the genetic material of life, might help accomplish this goal when it is formed into specific shapes through a process […]

Producing Fuels and Chemicals In A Very Different Way. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have discovered a natural process they describe as reverse photosynthesis. In the process, the energy in solar rays breaks down, rather than builds plant material, as is the case with photosynthesis. The sunlight is collected by chlorophyll, the same molecule […]
