    This article briefly discusses the new applications for the semiconductor supplier Actel. After a last great fourth quarter in 2000, Actel, like every other semiconductor supplier today is just bouncing along the bottom. However, Actel's president John East believes the good times will come again, driven by the emergence of yet another "killer" application. East is encouraged by the possibilities ...

    All over the world, interdisciplinary teams are uncovering new engineering truths to support the statement made in 1959 by US physicist Richard Feynman that "the principles of physics do not speak against the possibility of manoeuvring things atom by atom". Nanotechnology is based on the ability to create and manipulate materials, devices and systems at the nanometre scale; that is, one billionth ... View full abstract»

    Unusually, for a relatively new scientific discipline, Britain is in the forefront of efforts to create commercial products from nanotechnology research. There are now half a dozen British firms active in this nanomaterials sector, the attraction being its potential to impact so many areas of industry. One especially strong candidate for early commercialisation is nanopowder but other contenders a... View full abstract»

    The author questions wether mobile phones avoid the fate of the PC or is 'Microsoft-isation' inevitable. Microsoft has handful of mobile phones on the market built around its Smartphone 2002 operating system (OS) including O2's XDA and Orange's SPV (both built by Taiwanese firm HTC), and it hopes to increase its presence through further handset deals. A smartphone is a cross between a PDA and mobi... View full abstract»

    Logic elements of just a few atoms across promise exotic new concepts like quantum computing but how to integrate these tiny structures into devices in the first place is the key question. One answer is to harness biological molecules' innate ability to form into regular lattices. Semiconductor building blocks on the nanoscale could be chemically glued to specially engineered proteins or DNA stran... View full abstract»
