Despite the impact of COVID-19 on the global economy, the semiconductor market performed strongly in 2020. Demand by industry was uneven throughout the year due to global lockdowns, remote work and education, and shifts in consumer buying behavior.
A Rice University laboratory has adapted its laser-induced graphene technique to make high-resolution, micron-scale patterns of the conductive material for consumer electronics and other applications.
This discovery will help create new types of lasers capable of producing qubits – the main integral parts of quantum computers of the future.
JCET Group, a global provider of integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing and technology services, recently announced that the company successfully completed a capital raising of approximately RMB 5 billion.
Expect to see a convergence of edge computing, machine vision and 5G-connected vehicles.
In spintronics, the magnetic moment of electrons (spin) is used to transfer and manipulate information. An ultra-compact 2D spin-logic circuitry could be built from 2D materials that can transport the spin information over long distances and also provide strong spin-polarization of charge current. Experiments by physicists at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) and Colombia University (USA) suggest that magnetic graphene can be the ultimate choice for these 2D spin-logic devices as it efficiently converts charge to spin current and can transfer this strong spin-polarization over long distances.
Quantum-Si Incorporated, a company pioneering next-generation semiconductor chip-based proteomics, announced today the appointment of Marijn Dekkers, Ph.D. and Ruth Fattori to its Board of Directors.
