ENGINEERS PRODUCE SMALLEST 3-D TRANSISTOR YET

Process that modifies semiconductor material atom by atom could enable higher-performance electronics. Researchers from MIT and the University of Colorado have fabricated a 3-D transistor that’s less than half the size of today’s smallest commercial models. To do so, they developed a novel microfabrication technique that modifies semiconductor material atom by atom. The inspiration behind the work was to keep up …

Make an Atom Synchronised Clock from a 1950’s Slave Dial using Arduino

One day while exploring the bric-a-brac at the markets, I stumbled across an old, Bakelite slave dial from the 1950’s. Slave Dials are clock movements without the actual time keeping circuit. All they contain is the mechanism to drive the hour and minute hands, which can be advanced by an electric pulse. This pulse is …
