Material engineers including an Indian-origin scientist from University of Wisconsin-Madison have reported the highest-performing carbon nanotube transistors ever demonstrated - a significant leap toward creating flexible electronics with improved battery life.
In boost to their strategic ties, India and South Korea on Monday decided to enhance cooperation in sectors like shipbuilding, electronics, defence production, infrastructure and energy besides outlining mutual interest in areas of nuclear energy and cyber security.
Researchers have created a new breed of ultra thin super-material, "artificial graphene", which should lead to faster, smaller and lighter electronic and optical devices of all kinds, including higher performance photovoltaic cells, lasers or LED lighting.
Researchers at ETH University in Zurich are reportedly working on electronic components that are thinner and more flexible that paves way for new possibilities for ultra-thin, transparent sensors that are literally easy on the eye.
The national capital region (NCR) is set become the world`s dumping capital for e-waste as it would generate an estimated 50,000 tonnes of this per annum by 2015, a study by an industry chamber said Thursday.
