A voltage-controlled topological spin switch for ultralow-energy computing

Magnetic based technologies, like NanoMagnetic Logic, are gaining more interest as possible substitutes of CMOS transistors. Most of the logic and memory devices use...
A suspension of copper particles fixes breaks in electronic connections, providing a possible way to heal damaged circuits.

A new technique for self-healing the flexible electronics

Flexible electronics isn’t a new technology, but it has achieved remarkable progress over the past years and its importance to other industries have increased....
Researchers from MIT and elsewhere have designed the first fully flexible, battery-free “rectenna” — a device that converts energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity — that could be used to power flexible and wearable electronics, medical devices, and sensors for the “internet of things.” Image: Christine Daniloff

Converting Wi-Fi signals to electricity with new 2-D materials

MIT scientists have taken a step forward with a device that can potentially convert energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity. Usually, rectennas are used to...
