@LNF Sparse Adaptive Local Learning for Sensing and Analytics
New computer hardware based on the brain's approach to interpreting visual stimuli is being explored that will have the ability to process images and video 1,000 times faster with 10,000 times less power without the loss of accuracy. The computer chip utilizes networks of conventional transistors and… .

Penny-Sized Vacuum System Could Help Detect Chemical Weapons
Researchers at the University of Michigan developed three different pumps in three different pressure categories. From lowest to highest pressure, the categories are microplasma Penning ion high vacuum, Knudsen mid vacuum, and high-frequency peristaltic rough vacuum pumps. Pictured above is a 24-stage… .

Angle- Insensitive Structural Colours based on Metallic Nanocavities and Coloured Pixels beyond the Diffraction Limit
Current display technologies are based on chemical colorant pigmentation, which are vulnerable to a variety of processing chemicals, cannot withstand constant illumination with strong light intensities, and require extensive multilayer processing to pattern individual pixels. An alternative display technology… .

High resolution patterning on nonplanar substrates with large height variation using electron beam lithography
Abstract High resolution patterning on nonplanar substrates with large height variation using electron beam lithography is reported. Using an automatic, high precision, noncontact laser probe microscope, a three-dimensional map of the nonplanar substrate to be patterned is obtained first. This… .
