Israel approves $6bn Intel investment
September 23, 2014
Israel's finance and economy ministries yesterday approved a plan by Intel to invest $6 billion in the upgrade of its chip manufacturing plant, in what would be the largest single investment by a foreign company in the country. Intel will receive a government grant of $300 million over five years and will be eligible to pay a corporate tax rate of only 5% for a 10-year period, the ministries said. The US chip giant plans to hire close to 1 000 more workers at the plant in the southern town of Kiryat Gat by 2023, in addition to the 2 500 that already work there.

For electronics beyond silicon, a new contender emerges
September 23, 2014
Silicon has few serious competitors as the material of choice in the electronics industry. Yet transistors, the switchable valves that control the flow of electrons in a circuit, cannot simply keep shrinking to meet the needs of powerful, compact devices; physical limitations like energy consumption and heat dissipation are too significant. Now, using a quantum material called a correlated oxide, Harvard researchers have achieved a reversible change in electrical resistance of eight orders of magnitude, a result the researchers are calling "colossal."
