MIT Researchers Develop Thin-Film Switchable Material that Could Enable Next-Generation Memory Chips

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have produced a thin-film material whose electrical and phase characteristics can be altered between two crystal states - one semiconducting and one metallic - by applying an electrical charge. [More]
New Mechanism Allows Inexpensively and Easily Apply Complex Patterns to Glass Surface

New Mechanism Allows Inexpensively and Easily Apply Complex Patterns to Glass Surface

In a joint study, scientists from the MIPT (Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology), ICP (Institute of Chemical Physics) named after Semenov, MSU (Moscow State University) and IPCP (Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics) have developed a mechanism of laser deposition of patterns on glass with a resolution of 1000 times lower than the wideth of a human hair. Focusing the laser was conducted with the help of small glass spheres, playing the role of the lens. This mechanism allows inexpensively and relatively easy to apply complex patterns to a glass surface, whereby obtaining a spatial resolution of less than 100 nanometers. [More]
