Rice-sized laser, powered one electron at a time, bodes well for quantum computing
January 28, 2015
Princeton University researchers have built a rice grain-sized laser powered by single electrons tunnelling through artificial atoms known as quantum dots. The tiny microwave laser, or "maser," is a demonstration of the fundamental interactions between light and moving electrons. The researchers built the device - which uses about one-billionth the electric current needed to power a hair dryer - while exploring how to use quantum dots, which are bits of semiconductor material that act like single atoms, as components for quantum computers.

Nanotubes help better electronics
January 28, 2015
Starting from scraps, material scientists search for raw materials that can be innovated or substituted to increase the functional efficiency and flexibility of the appropriate technologies. The idea behind the field stems from the notion that the efficiency of a product can be compromised by the choice of material used to construct such devices even with the best abilities of an engineer. Two members in this field from UW-Madison include Associate Professor Michael Arnold and Professor of Material Science and Engineering Padma Gopalan. Arnold's research group focuses on finding materials with use for the future in areas such as applications of semiconductors, optoelectronics or energy sources such as solar cells. Gopalan's group focuses on polymers and photonic materials and devices. As a collaborative project, the members from both research groups have discovered carbon nanotubes as a possible replacement for silicon-based semiconductors.

Yahoo Spinoff Of Alibaba Stake Cheers Investors As Q4 Lags; Sales Still Falling; EPS Sinks Holdings in China e-com leader represents great majority of portal's value
January 28, 2015
Web search firm Yahoo late Tuesday, bowing to shareholder pressure, announced a tax-free spinoff of its 15% stake in China e-commerce leader Alibaba Group, rallying its stock despite another quarterly decline in sales and earnings. In a conference call with analysts following the earnings release, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer called the spinoff of the Alibaba shares a "historic" undertaking. But activist investor Starboard Value, and other stockholders, had been seeking such a move to realize value in the U.S. Web portal's prescient investment in a young Alibaba nearly 10 years ago.

Qorvo Joins Lexicon After Big Chip Merger; RF Micro-TriQuint firm aims to boost innovation in connectivity sectors
January 28, 2015
Qorvo CEO Bob Bruggeworth is leading a new management team working to integrate two chipmakers' products and cultures, leverage their combined strengths and define long-term technology and product road maps. He'll draw on 31 years of experience to accomplish the challenge. The name Qorvo might not ring a bell. RF Micro Devices, also called RFMD, agreed in February 2014 to acquire TriQuint Semiconductor for about $1.6 billion.
