  • The future of computing: new architectures and new technologies.1. Biology versus silicon

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):44 - 48
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (532 KB)

    Current computing architectures and technologies have been enormously successful in changing our ways of working and living. Yet all technologies have their limitations, and there are many computing problems which demand a new approach. This article looks at how new insight from biology and new organic and inorganic computing substrates could change the face of computing. New technologies, based o... View full abstract»

  • Electrical and electronic engineering research in British universities: the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):57 - 63
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (570 KB)

    The UK's higher education funding bodies periodically carry out an assessment of the quality of research at British universities and higher education colleges. The results of the assessment enable approximately. £1 billion of public funds for research to be distributed selectively each year on the basis of quality. The most recent assessment was carried out in 2001 (the first was conducted i... View full abstract»

    Since the invention of the scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) in the early 1980s atomic level microscopy has taken on a new dimension. The STM and the atomic force microscope (AFM) have become key instruments in the study of phenomena in the smallest dimensions ranging from magnetism in ultra-thin films, through the understanding of how atoms and molecules organise themselves, to insights into t...
