Sticky sensor may keep troops out of harm's way
News & Analysis  
5/24/2004   Post a comment
Using sensor circuitry, a paintball gun and a "big glob of sticky polymer," undergraduate students at the University of Florida (Gainesville) have invented a device that may save the lives of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan whom agitators continue to ambush with roadside explosives.
Dopants stabilize materials at the nanoscale level
News & Analysis  
5/24/2004   Post a comment
Downsizing to the nanoscale theoretically endows materials with greater strength, enabling copper interconnects, for example, to remain reliable even when line widths shrink to the nanoscale.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
