What if the odds of an event occurring were about one in ten billion? This is the case for the decay of a positively charged particle known as a kaon into another positively charged particle called a pion and a neutrino–antineutrino pair.

The computing and telecommunications industries have ambitious plans for the future: Systems that will store information in the cloud, analyze enormous amounts of data, and think more like a brain than a standard computer. Such systems are already being developed, and scientists at IBM Research have now demonstrated what may be an important step toward commercializing this next generation of computing technology. They established a method to integrate silicon photonic chips with the processor in the same package, avoiding the need for transceiver assemblies.

Silicon parts, standard dicing

For standard thicknesses from 150 µm to 1 mm, silicon wafers can be cut in small pieces with high precision (± 0.02 mm).

During the dicing operation the wafer is typically mounted on blue tape, yielding to the minimisation of particles. The area that has been cut away and called “die streets” are typically about 75µm wide.

The minimum dicing size is 1,5 x 1.5 mm up to 100 x 100 mm for square wafers.

Crystal characterized with X-ray topography from Sil’tronix ST and another supplier.

The topographers are recorded to a 20 keV photon energy and show a 40 mm long section of the 120 mm long crystals installed as a second crystal in a double crystal monochromator.

Both crystals show a very good crystallinity. The Si crystal from Sil’tronix ST is almost free of defects, while the one from the other supplier shows scratches on the surface, most probably due to the polishing process.

In the U.S., more than 100 food recalls were issued in 2017 because of contamination from harmful bacteria such as ListeriaSalmonella or E. coli. A new sensor design could one day make it easier to detect pathogens in food before products hit the supermarket shelves, thus preventing sometimes-deadly illnesses from contaminated food.

A team of scientists from Lobachevsky University (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia) has obtained a material with a new structure for applications in next-generation optoelectronics and photonics. This material is one of the hexagonal modifications of silicon, which have better radiative properties compared to conventional cubic silicon, which is traditionally used in microelectronics.
