    Mapping Functional Diversity of Forests With Remote Sensing

    Productivity and stability of forest ecosystems strongly depend on the functional diversity of plant communities. Researchers have developed a new method to measure and map functional diversity of forests at different scales — from individual...

    When Electronics and Photonics Meet on a Standard Chip

    Electronics and light don’t go well together on a standard ‘CMOS’ chip. Researcher Satadal Dutta of the University of Twente succeeded in introducing a light connection into the heart of a semiconductor chip. In this way, two...
  • After using optoelectronic tweezers to assemble a line of solder beads a, the researchers froze the liquid b and then reduced the pressure so that the frozen liquid turned directly from a solid into a gas, drying out the device c They then heated the bead

    Using Light to Assemble Electronic Components

    An international team of researchers has developed a new light-based manipulation method that could one day be used to mass produce electronic components for smartphones, computers and other devices. A cheaper and faster way to produce these...

    Sensors Printed on Plant Leaves Warn of Water Shortage

    MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage. This kind of technology could not only save neglected houseplants but, more importantly, give farmers an early...
