Printer for plasmonic structures works at room temperature

Printing nano-scale features in surfaces it difficult, according to Purdue University, particularly if the required features are smaller than the gains in the metal – the grains govern the ‘formability limit’. Sputtering metal into moulds is another route, so long at the resulting rough surface texture is not an issue. Now Purdue is claiming both …

Toshiba prototypes 96-layer 1.3Tbit NAND

Toshiba has developed a prototype 96-layer BiCS FLASH, memory using 3D flash quad level cell (QLC) technology. The IC achieves the industry’s maximum capacity of 1.33 terabits for a single chip. This also realises an unparalleled capacity of 2.66 terabytes in a single package by utilising a 16-chip stacked architecture. The huge volumes of data generated …

Flow battery uses liquid sodium-potassium alloy

Researchers at Stanford University have proposed liquid sodium-potassium alloy as an electron donor in a flow battery. Instead of storing electrons within the structure of a battery, a flow battery stores electrons in the form of chemicals in tanks, which are pumped into an electrolytic cell when charge or discharge is required. The action decouples …
