thumbnailDarpa Wants Next-Gen Spy Hardware to Literally Dissolve
Darpa isn't imagining planes or ships that melt into a metallic puddle when their replacements come off the production line. The research agency is thinking, in one sense, smaller: sensors and other “sophisticated electronic microsystems” that litter a ...

thumbnailFish-like sensors act as eyes and ears of robot subs
The low-energy MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) devices could make the often bulky, inaccurate and heavily energy-dependent cameras and sonars usually integrated onto AUVs redundant, instead packing all the navigational tools into an array of ...

MEMS sensors play role in LED lighting revolution
New thermal sensors based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) do not suffer this disadvantage. MEMS thermopiles, essentially nano-scale arrays of thermocouples, measure the actual temperature of the sources rather than a differential value, ...

thumbnailMiniature Star Trek-Style 'Tractor Beam' Created in Lab
Imagine that force operating in reverse and you have a sense for how this micro-scale “tractor beam” works: A laser beamed through a lens strikes a mirror, causing it to fire back and across the oncoming beam in a vaguely X-like configuration. The ...
