An important fraction of the matter in the universe is very cold, and emits only far infrared, microwave or millimeter wave radiation. To detect cold astronomical objects, a radiotelescope’s detection instrument must be cooled to even lower temperatures, to avoid the thermal noise of the detector. NIKA 2, the second generation Neel-IRAM-KID-Array, is a dual-band millimeter-wave camera operating simultaneously at 150 and 260 GHz. The instrument is based on large arrays of superconducting Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs) operated at temperature 0.1 Kelvin. NIKA 2 was built by an international consortium, led by the Institut NÉEL. Successful installation took place in October 2015 at the 30 m diameter telescope of the IRAM (Institut de Radioastronomie Millimétique) on Pico Veleta at altitude 2850 m in the Sierra Nevada, Spain.

Nikola Tesla, one of the most influential inventors of the 20th century, spent his life working with electricity and dreamed of the possibility of wireless communication. Although he died about 30 years before the first call was made on a wireless cell phone, his work is invaluable to the technology available today. What could be a more fitting tribute to this man than a statue in his likeness that is equipped with free Wifi?

What if, instead of a black and white X-ray picture, a doctor of a cancer patient had access to colour images identifying the tissues being scanned? This colour X-ray imaging technique could produce clearer and more accurate pictures and help doctors give their patients more accurate diagnoses.

Silicon is very hard, yet brittle material. The sharp edge of sawn wafers fractures readily, producing unacceptable edge chips and particles.

In order to minimize the risk of breakage, the SEMI standard forecasts an edge really specific.

Sil'tronix ST provides the process to be in accordance with the standard and even more whith customized edges.

Directly converting electrical power to heat is easy. It regularly happens in your toaster, that is, if you make toast regularly. The opposite, converting heat into electrical power, isn’t so easy.

Researchers from Sandia National Laboratories have developed a tiny silicon-based device that can harness what was previously called waste heat and turn it into DC power.

The incidence of adverse effects and pathogen resistance encountered with small molecule antibiotics is increasing. As such, there is mounting focus on immunogene therapy to augment the immune system’s response to infection and accelerate healing. A major obstacle to in vivo gene delivery is that the primary uptake pathway, cellular endocytosis, results in extracellular excretion and lysosomal degradation of genetic material. Here we show a nanosystem that bypasses endocytosis and achieves potent gene knockdown efficacy. Porous SIlicon...
