Flexible BiCMOS substrate with simplified process for roll-to-roll production

  The team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Nanjing University have also simplified the manufacturing process for roll-to-roll production systems. The substrate is a transferable single crystalline Si nanomembrane (Si NM) 340nm thick on a single piece of bendable plastic substrate.   The planar 1.5μm n-channel and p-channel MOSFETS and the NPN bipolar junction transistors […]

Here’s What a World Powered by Quantum Computers Will Look Like

Beyond Science Fiction In 1935, Albert Einstein famously collaborated with physicists Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen on a paper designed to illuminate the weaknesses in quantum mechanics, a branch of physics focused on the very small. Though the phenomenon of “entanglement” was so new the term hadn’t even been coined yet, Einstein wasted no time voicing […]

As Cassini Makes 1st ‘Grand Finale’ Dive, More Saturn Mysteries Remain

Running low on fuel, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has begun the final — and most daring — phase of its epic mission to Saturn.

After using a final flyby of the moon Titan on Friday to boost its speed, Cassini was flung by the moon’s gravity to a trajectory that sent it diving through the 1,200-mile (1,930 kilometers) gap between the planet’s upper atmosphere and innermost rings, NASA officials said.

Cassini completed the first crossing of the ring plane at about 2 a.m. PDT (5 a.m. EDT, or 0900 GMT) Wednesday, the space agency said in a statement.
