Computer maker HP plans to release a 3-D printer—but that doesn’t necessarily mean a personal printing revolution is afoot.
New research suggests graphene could enable highly efficient optical communication in chips for data centers and supercomputers.
A carbon nanotube computer processor is comparable to a chip from the early 1970s, and may be the first step beyond silicon electronics.
Using DNA to synthesize and align ultra-thin graphene ribbons could represent a way to manufacture graphene transistors that don’t leak.
A material that selectively blocks heat and light could finally make it practical to add smart windows to buildings.
Streaming designs to 3-D printers like Netflix does movies could prevent unauthorized copying.
Researchers aim to print large areas of carbon nanotube thin-film transistors on plastic surfaces to make flexible displays and sensor networks.
Researchers demonstrate flexible graphene circuits speedy enough for cell-phone communication.
Princeton researchers, using a 3-D printer, have built a bionic ear with integrated electronics.
Researchers discover that a material known for a hundred years could lower the cost of solar power.
