DIY Wi-Fi Antenna

June 12, 2012 11:00 am | Comments

Make your own Wi-Fi antenna from an empty pringles can. Keep in mind that this won’t provide you with a free connection — just a stronger signal. In fact, DIY blogger John Graham-Cumming found 97 networks pointing the can in one direction, compared to only 58 networks using a standard antenna. From start to finish, the entire project will cost about $5 to $10, versus upward of $100 for a brand-new commercial Wi-Fi antenna.

Spin Structure Reveals Key to New Forms of Digital Storage

June 12, 2012 8:26 am | Comments

A synthetic compound long known to exhibit interesting transition properties may hold the key to new, non-magnetic forms of information storage, say researchers at the RIKEN SPring-8 Center and their collaborators. The team's latest findings shed light on the complex relationship between a compound's electron spin arrangement and its transport properties, an area researchers have long struggled to understand.


A 'Dirt Cheap' Magnetic Field Sensor from 'Plastic Paint'

June 12, 2012 7:56 am | Comments

University of Utah physicists developed an inexpensive, highly accurate magnetic field sensor for scientific and possibly consumer uses based on a "spintronic" organic thin-film semiconductor that basically is "plastic paint." The new kind of magnetic-resonance magnetometer also resists heat and degradation, works at room temperature and never needs to be calibrated, physicists Christoph Boehme, Will Baker and colleagues report online in the Tuesday, June 12 edition of the journal Nature Communications.

Rice, UCLA Slash Energy Needs for Next-Generation Memory

June 12, 2012 7:35 am | by The breakthrough was presented at the IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco by researchers from Rice University’s Adaptive Computing and Embedded Systems (ACES) Laboratory. | Comments

Researchers from Rice University and UCLA unveiled a new data-encoding scheme this week that slashes more than 30 percent of the energy needed to write data onto new memory cards that use “phase-change memory” (PCM) — a competitor to flash memory that has big backing from industry heavyweights. PCM uses the same type of materials as those used in rewritable CDs and DVDs, and it does the same job as flash memory — the mainstay technology in USB thumb drives and memory cards for cameras and other devices.


SFU Helps Quantum Computers Move Closer

June 12, 2012 7:22 am | Comments

The quantum computer is a futuristic machine that could operate at speeds even more mind-boggling than the world’s fastest super-computers. Research involving physicist Mike Thewalt of Simon Fraser University offers a new step towards making quantum computing a reality, through the unique properties of highly enriched and highly purified silicon.
