Moving Components in Miniature


Electromagnetic engines can't be reduced to just any size. It takes clever engineering tricks to generate active movement in miniature format. Researchers in Bochum are constantly coming up with new technologies.

The bright future of solar energy

Environment - Electroengineering

Solar energy, which is both abundant and free, is poised to become the world's leading power source by 2050. That's thanks largely to technological advances and the unbridled manufacturing of solar cells, which bodes well for a successful energy transition.

AI chips could get a sense of time

Timekeeping in the brain is done with neurons that relax at different rates after receiving a signal; now memristors-hardware analogues of neurons-can do that too.

Elaine Liu: Charging ahead

The MIT senior calculates how renewables and EVs impact the grid. MIT senior Elaine Siyu Liu doesn't own an electric car, or any car. But she sees the impact of electric vehicles (EVs) and renewables on the grid as two pieces of an energy puzzle she wants to solve.

This sound-suppressing silk can create quiet spaces


Researchers engineered a hair-thin fabric to create a lightweight, compact, and efficient mechanism to reduce noise transmission in a large room.

Physicists arrange atoms in extremely close proximity

Physics - Electroengineering

The technique opens possibilities for exploring exotic states of matter and building new quantum materials.

Two MIT teams selected for NSF sustainable materials grants

Chosen from 16 finalist teams, the MIT-led projects will investigate quantum topological materials and sustainable microchip production.

Turning up the heat on next-generation semiconductors

Research sheds light on the properties of novel materials that could be used in electronics operating in extremely hot environments.

More Reliability for Electronic Components: TU Graz Opens New CD Lab

Electroengineering - Innovation

The "CD Laboratory for EMC-Aware Robust Electronic Systems" carries out research into the negative electromagnetic influences on electronic components in production and operation in order to eliminate the causes of failures.

High-voltage technology to supercharge the mining industry

Economics - Electroengineering

Zapping rocks with a high-voltage pulse - similar to a lightning strike - could be the answer to decarbonising the mining industry according to researchers from The University of Queensland.

Groundbreaking Microcapacitors Could Power Chips of the Future

In the ongoing quest to make electronic devices ever smaller and more energy efficient, researchers want to bring energy storage directly onto microchips, reducing the losses incurred when power is transported between various device components.

Scientists capture X-rays from upward positive lightning

Physics - Electroengineering

Researchers have for the first time recorded X-rays being produced at the beginning of upward positive lightning flashes; an observation that gives important insight into the origins of this rare - and particularly dangerous - form of lightning.

Skyrmions move at record speeds: a step towards the computing of the future

Physics - Electroengineering

An international research team led by scientists from the CNRS 1 has discovered that the magnetic nanobubbles 2 known as skyrmions can be moved by ele
