    The future of the television set was supposed to be simple. At some point in the near future, LCDs were supposed to become obsolete and give way to bright, sharp, and incredibly thin OLED displays. It turns out that the near future of TVs isn't going to be so simple-but it sure is going to be bright. The reason? Quantum dots. If you've shopped for a TV lately, you've probably been dazzled, or more... View full abstract»

At Zenuity-a joint venture between Volvo and Autoliv, a Swedish auto-safet... View full abstract»

    In electronics, the past half century has been a steady march away from analog and toward digital. Telephony, music recording and playback, cameras, and radio and television broadcasting have all followed the lead of computing, which had largely gone digital by the middle of the 20th century.
