Obama’s supercomputer order gets a step closer

"A modern supercomputer’s electricity bill can easily top £60 million pounds" Back in July 2015, Obama put executive orders out for the USA to build the world's fastest supercomputer by 2025, this order created the National Strategic Computing Initiative....

  • Biofinder advances detection of extraterrestrial...
    on June, 2022 at 12:15 am

    An innovative scientific instrument, the Compact Color Biofinder may change the game in the search for signs of extraterrestrial life.

  • Flexing the power of a conductive polymer
    on June, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    For decades, field-effect transistors enabled by silicon-based semiconductors have powered the electronics revolution. But in recent years, manufacturers have come up against hard physical limits to further size reductions and efficiency gains of silicon chips. That has scientists and engineers […]

  • 3D printing of 'organic electronics'
    on June, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    A research group has explored the potential production of micro-scale organic electronics for use in bioelectronics via multiphoton 3-D printers.

    Over the last two decades, microscopy has seen unprecedented advances in speed and resolution. However, cellular structures are essentially three-dimensional, and conventional super-resolution techniques often lack the necessary resolution in all three directions to capture details at a nanometer […]

    on June, 2022 at 3:54 pm

    Researchers have made a new discovery on how light behaves in complex media, media that tends to distort light significantly. They demonstrated that 'distortion' is a matter of perspective, outlining a simple rule that applies to all light and a vast array of media, including underwater, optical […]

  • Quantum network nodes with warm atoms
    on June, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    Communication networks need nodes at which information is processed or rerouted. Physicists have now developed a network node for quantum communication networks that can store single photons in a vapor cell and pass them on later.

Header Banner: Speed is the name of the game. The DarkDrug logo shows an Intel Xeon microchip die. Xeon is a brand of x86 microprocessors designed, manufactured, and marketed by Intel, targeted at the non-consumer workstation, server, and embedded system markets. It was introduced in June 1998. The advent ofoptical fibre cable has allowed the speed of data transmission to reach dizzy heights (shown in the DarkDrug logo). The field of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers is known as fibre optics. The term was coined by Indian physicist Narinder Singh Kapany, who is widely acknowledged as the father of fibre optics.
