Science's Breakthrough of the Year: Watching evolution in action
...lls, are as key to nerve and muscle functioning as transistors
are to computers. Changing Climate of Climate Change?: In 2005, evidence linking humans to global warming continued to accumulate and U.S. politicians began to take notice. From the warming of deep ocean waters and increased frequencies of the most...
Researchers get neurons and silicon talking
...n microchip company Infineon, NACHIP placed 16,384 transistors
and hundreds of capacitors on a chip just 1mm squared in size. The group had to find appropriate materials and refine the topology of the chip to make the connection with neurons possible. Biologically NACHIP uses special proteins found in the brain...
Nanowire arrays can detect signals along individual neurons
...n communication. By contrast, the tiny nanowire transistors
developed by Lieber and colleagues gently touch a neuronal projection to form a hybrid synapse, making them noninvasive, and are thousands of times smaller than the electronics now used to measure brain activity. Lieber's group has previously shown...
Snakes' virtual glasses, leopard spots and all-optical transistors
...components are light-based analogues of electrical transistors
and other devices. They are among the most eagerly anticipated technological advances, with the potential to revolutionize computers and communications. But all-optical devices built in the past have been far too large and power hungry to be practica...
