    In the shadow of high-temperature superconductivity, 35 years of research in low-temperature superconductor ICs quietly comes to fruition, yielding the world's fastest circuits. They are made with a superconducting metal, niobium, rather than a compound semiconductor. Their exotic technology is based on Josephson junction devices and the transmission of single quanta of magnetic flux along superco... View full abstract»

    Computers have been storing data magnetically on disks for close to a half century. Yet in the last few years, the ability to pack data onto a surface using this supposedly mature technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Starting in 1997 with IBM's introduction of the first giant magnetoresistive read-and-write head, density has been doubling every year. Researchers now expect disk storage den... View full abstract»

    The importance of information system security, particularly as it applies to the Internet, is obvious. Each day the news media report yet another security breach-sometimes a localized single crime or prank at others, a denial-of-service attack affecting millions of people. As electronic commerce becomes increasingly pervasive, the subject can only become more critical. One of the more interesting ... View full abstract»

    The loss of the nuclear submarine Kursk and the fire in Moscow's TV tower are indications of an infrastructure in grievous disrepair. The outlook for Russia's technological infrastructure remains grim, experts insist. Almost 70 percent of the population drinks water unfit by US standards. One-third of waste water is released untreated. Railways, electricity, oil and gas pipelines, roads and bridge... View full abstract»
