    In contrast to their negative reputation as disease causing agents, some viruses can perform crucial biological and evolutionary functions that help to shape the world we live in today, according to a new report by the American Academy of Microbiology. “Viruses participate in essential Earth processes and influence all life forms on the planet, from contributing to biogeochemical cycles, shaping the atmospheric composition, and driving major speciation events,” states Marilyn Roossinck of Pennsylvania State University, a member of the steering committee that helped to organize the…

  • BRRAT Scientists Have Done It Again

    American Biotechnologist
    17 Jul 2014 | 1:48 pm
    So the BRRAT (Bioterrorism Rapid Response and Technology laboratory) scientists are at it again. They just cannot keep themselves out of trouble. I am at a loss for words. There really is nothing left to say. You can’t make this stuff up folks. Three breaches of CDC (Center for Disease Control) policy regarding the safe handling of extremely dangerous bio-hazardous materials all within weeks of each other. For the benefit of those that have not read the stories that we’ve posted previously, here is a brief recap. In June, approximately 75 scientists were exposed to the deadly…

  • A new multi-bit ‘spin’ for MRAM storage

    sdavis
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Interest in magnetic random access memory (MRAM) is escalating, thanks to demand for fast, low-cost, nonvolatile, low-consumption, secure memory devices. MRAM, which relies on manipulating the magnetization of materials for data storage rather than electronic charges, boasts all of these advantages as an emerging technology, but so far it hasn’t been able to match flash memory in terms of storage density. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing, a France-U.S. research team reports an intriguing new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm with the potential to rival flash…
  • Understanding graphene’s electrical properties on an atomic level

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:32 pm
    Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. Now, for the first time, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have used a cutting-edge microscope to study the relationship between the atomic geometry of a ribbon of graphene and its electrical properties. A deeper understanding of this relationship will be…

  • A new multi-bit ‘spin’ for MRAM storage

    sdavis
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Interest in magnetic random access memory (MRAM) is escalating, thanks to demand for fast, low-cost, nonvolatile, low-consumption, secure memory devices. MRAM, which relies on manipulating the magnetization of materials for data storage rather than electronic charges, boasts all of these advantages as an emerging technology, but so far it hasn’t been able to match flash memory in terms of storage density. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing, a France-U.S. research team reports an intriguing new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm with the potential to rival flash…
  • Understanding graphene’s electrical properties on an atomic level

    sdavis
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:32 pm
    Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. Now, for the first time, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have used a cutting-edge microscope to study the relationship between the atomic geometry of a ribbon of graphene and its electrical properties. A deeper understanding of this relationship will be…

    By Paula Doe, SEMI Investors are still looking for differentiated technologies that solve high-value problems in semiconductor manufacturing, or that bring semiconductor technology to disruptive applications in other fields, particularly in the medical and environmental sectors, said the leading venture capitalists gathered at the Silicon Innovation Forum at SEMICON West 2014. “As financial investors have moved to fund more ‘flapping bird’ apps instead of hardware, strategic investors have moved more to early-stage hardware opportunities,” noted Robert Maire, president,…

    Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation, founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, and RF Micro Devices, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high-performance radio frequency solutions, today announced that they have settled all outstanding claims between the companies. The two parties have entered into patent cross licenses and have agreed to dismiss all related litigation. Specific financial terms of the agreement remain confidential. “We are pleased that we have reached agreement with RF Micro Devices and resolved all of our outstanding litigation…

    Micron Technology, Inc. and TechInsights today announced that Micron has been honored with both the Most Innovative Memory Device and Semiconductor of the Year awards for their 16nm NAND Flash memory technology in TechInsights’ 11th Annual Insight Awards. TechInsights, a technology and IP consulting firm, conducted extensive research and analysis on multiple semiconductor designs. They chose to recognize Micron’s industry-leading 16nm NAND Flash memory for overcoming the major scaling challenges currently facing Flash technology. Micron’s 16nm NAND Flash enables the…
  • A new multi-bit ‘spin’ for MRAM storage

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:35 pm
    Interest in magnetic random access memory (MRAM) is escalating, thanks to demand for fast, low-cost, nonvolatile, low-consumption, secure memory devices. MRAM, which relies on manipulating the magnetization of materials for data storage rather than electronic charges, boasts all of these advantages as an emerging technology, but so far it hasn’t been able to match flash memory in terms of storage density. In the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing, a France-U.S. research team reports an intriguing new multi-bit MRAM storage paradigm with the potential to rival flash…
  • Understanding graphene’s electrical properties on an atomic level

    Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. Now, for the first time, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have used a cutting-edge microscope to study the relationship between the atomic geometry of a ribbon of graphene and its electrical properties. A deeper understanding of this relationship will be…
