The Research team of Penn State University and Cornell University physicists has discovered a novel material for studying the concept of “spin-transfer torque”. The new substance is a combination of standard magnetic material and bismuth selenide, also known as "topological insulator". Bismuth selenide inherently aid the flow of electrons with a particular oriented spin. The results show that this amalgamation can be more efficient for managing and controlling magnetic memory and logic than any...

Researchers at University of California, Berkeley and MIT's Media Lab are working in collaboration with Microsoft on a display that compensates for vision defects in people. The technology uses algorithms to anticipate how the user's eyes distort the image and adjusts it beforehand to bypass the function of corrective lenses entirely. The algorithm works on the pixel-level to create a sharp image on the retina. Not only does this technique assist people with hypermetropia (long-sightedness) but...

For years the crime investigation departments across the world and the police have been using the sniffer dogs to detect bombs/explosives and what-not. The sniffer dogs' training is an expensive venture and the dogs could become tired. So now, much to the dog's rescue, a team of engineers from UC Berkeley is working on increasing the sensitivity of a light-based plasmon sensor so that they could be used to completely replace the sniffer dogs in the near future. The engineering team led by Xiang...
