Development breakthrough for UV LEDs

21 November, 2003

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories developing ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting diodes (LEDs) recently demonstrated two deep UV semiconductor optical devices that set records for wavelength/power output. One emits at a wavelength of 290 nm and produces 1.3 milliwatts of output power, and the other emits at a wavelength of 275 nm and produces 0.4 milliwatts of power.

Smaller, simpler way to archive data

17 November, 2003

Engineers at Princeton University and Hewlett-Packard have invented a combination of materials that could lead to inexpensive, compact electronic memory devices for archiving digital images or other data.

Why silicon crystals lose their 'edge'

05 November, 2003

Physicists have discovered a mechanism that forces sharp edges on the surface of a silicon crystal to become rounded, and have described this rounding in detail for the first time

Rail-to-rail op amp

28 October, 2003 | Supplied by: Soanar Limited

Linear Technology has released the LT6011, a dual micropower precision rail-to-rail output op amp.

Diode developed for faster electronics

14 October, 2003

Engineers have designed a new diode that transmits more electricity - conducting 150,000 A per square centimetre. Unlike other diodes in its class, called tunnel diodes, the new diode is compatible with silicon, so manufacturers could build it into mainstream electronic devices such as mobile phone and computers.

Breakthrough in silicon photonics

05 October, 2003

Silicon, one of the base elements of our planet, is the foundation of the modern information society. Modern electronics would be unthinkable without the development of silicon transistors
