Researchers harness 2D magnetic materials for energy-efficient computing
An MIT team precisely controlled an ultrathin magnet at room temperature, which could enable faster, more efficient processors and computer memories. Experimental computer memories and processors built from magnetic materials use far less energy than traditional silicon-based devices. Two-dimensional magnetic materials, composed of layers that are only a few atoms thick, have incredible properties that could allow magnetic-based devices to achieve unprecedented speed, efficiency, and scalability.

Ultrafast Lasers on Ultra-Tiny Chips
Ultrafast Lasers on Ultra-Tiny Chips
Lasers have become relatively commonplace in everyday life, but they have many uses outside of providing light shows at raves and scanning barcodes on groceries. Lasers are also of great importance in telecommunications and computing as well as biology, chemistry, and physics research. In those latter applications, lasers that can emit extremely short pulses-those on the order of one-trillionth of a second (one picosecond) or shorter-are especially useful.

Making repair the first choice for Londoners with broken electrical appliances
Making repair the first choice for Londoners with broken electrical appliances
Researchers at Imperial are analysing the reasons people don't get their gadgets repaired, and suggesting measures to change their minds. Repairing broken household electrical devices rather than throwing them away has all kinds of environmental benefits. There is less waste, obviously, but you also save all the energy, materials and emissions involved in making a replacement, to say nothing of the emissions and congestion involved in transporting it to the consumer.
