Smallest Energy Efficient Computer Chips for Computers & Smart Phones

16 Oct 17

Scientists have recently created smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient computer chips for computers and smartphones. This study was done by the team of researchers from Osaka University and the Nara Institute of Science and Technology. As per the researchers, this is the first time they have created such device. For the research, the scientists used scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to create images of atomically flat side-surfaces of 3D silicon crystals.

The scientists stated that the processing speed of smartphones and computing devices has increased dramatically over time as the number of transistors that can fit on a single computer chip continues to increase. Additionally, these devices are loaded with millions of tiny transistors.

Based on Moore's Law, the number of transistors per chip will double about every 2 years. Additionally as per the reports by the scientists’ team, the increment in this area it seems to be holding up.

To balance this speed of rapid innovation, computer manufacturers are continually on the lookout for new methods to make each transistor ever smaller.

The Fun of Ice Skating

15 Oct 17

Ice Skating is usually played by moving on ice by using ice skates. It is organised both on specially prepared ice surfaces like arenas, tracks, parks etc or on naturally frozen water bodies, such as ponds, lakes and rivers. A study reflects that the trace of earliest ice skating is found in southern Finland, that was supposed to be played more than 3,000 years ago.

At that time the skates used were sharpened and flattened bone strapped towards the bottom of the foot. Edges that were made of steel were added to ice skates with sharpened edges to aid movement, by the Dutch in the 13th or 14th century. It is said that Ice skating was brought to Britain from the Netherlands, where James II was exiled in the 17th century. Gradually Ice Skating took the form of an organised sport.

A skate can slide over ice because there is a layer of ice molecules at the surface that are not as tightly bound as the molecules of the mass of ice beneath. These molecules are in a semi liquid form and provide lubrication. Skating depends on the roughness of the ice as well as on the design of the ice skate and the skill of the player. It has some drawbacks and can cause major injury, thus it is advised to play under guidance of an expert.
