High-tech fishing gear for landing a big lunker

Every year, angling gets a bit more high-tech. The rods use materials that can bend farther and won’t snap. The reels handle the fishing line a bit more accurately thanks to new interior components. This year is no different except that a few products even give you the edge by letting you see underwater in high-definition and cast new lures created using 3D modelling to imitate real fish. Which one of these high-tech products will hook you this spring?

Gamma rays could improve screening for nuclear, other hazardous materials

Gamma rays could improve screening for nuclear and other hazardous materials. It is the stuff of scientists’ nightmares and science fiction writers’ plot points: a nuclear weapon is slipped into the U.S. on a cargo ship and detonates, destroying an American seaport and killing a million people.

Silicene could help create an alternative to graphene, with many of its benefits

Silicene
New materials research could provide researchers with an alternate material to graphene that’s more suited to semiconductor design — if they can figure out how to keep silicene, the single-atom lattice of silicon, from degrading in a matter of minutes.

What’s better than a carbon nanotube chip? A transparent and flexible carbon nanotube and IGZO chip!

USC's CNT/IGZO hybrid computer chip, flexible
Researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) have combined two of our favorite materials — carbon nanotubes and IGZO — to create a new hybrid computer chip design that is flexible, transparent, and more energy efficient than conventional silicon chips. Potential applications include flexible OLED displays, circuits, memory, and sensors, eventually leading towards flexible, wearable computers — which, as you may have noticed, appears to be the direction that the computing industry is moving towards.

The first fully-2D, wonder-material graphene-molybdenite transistor could be the future of fast electronics

Flexible graphene circuit
Researchers at Berkeley Lab, using a trio of single-atom-thick wonder materials — graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenite — have created the first all-2D field-effect transistor. This FET could also be the first in a new class of electronic devices that are held together with the van der Waals force — the same force that geckos use to walk up a piece of glass. According to Berkeley Lab, these 2D, wonder-material FETs could be the key to a ‘faster electronics future.’
