IBM has developed a high-speed photodetector based on a germanium-on-insulator (GOI) technology that could allow ready incorporation into standard chipmaking processes. The company hopes for applications designed to greatly increasing the speed at which information travels to and from microchips over optical connections. Existing silicon (Si) photodetectors are inadequate for the speeds needed for optical interconnects.
Friday 25th June 2004
Toshiba has produced a prototype of a highly compact (22x56x4.5mm) direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) that can be integrated into devices as small as digital audio players and wireless headsets for mobile phones. The total weight is 8.5grams (g). An MP3 music player could be supplied with power for as long as 20 hours on a single 2cc charge of highly concentrated methanol. The fuel cell output is 100mW.
