Electrical engineers at TU Darmstadt have developed a concept for a tiny, laser-driven electron accelerator. Applications in medicine and industry are conceivable.

Presentation Principle of the accelerator chip

The new particle accelerator should be so small. Accordingly, it could be produced in large quantities in a cost-effective manner.

The glassy footballer on the field gets a new dimension: Thanks to the chip of a Munich-based company in ball and jersey you know now, how high a player jumps in the header and how firmly he has shot the ball into the goal. Actually, the chip belongs to the world of Industry 4.0 and could revolutionize the sport.

One or two people might have to swallow this news first: researchers from ETH Zurich have developed a microsensor for measuring temperature, which at the same time and US regulations for use in the food industry. This means that it is harmless to health and can be easily digested after consumption.

ETH Zurich researchers have developed a temperature sensor that is five times thinner than a human hair. He can crumple and fold, but above all, he can be eaten without hesitation.

In some Swedish companies, they are already part of everyday life. Now the US company Three Square Market is giving its employees NFC chips as well.

The chip is injected under the skin in a small procedure. Like here at the IFA 2015.

First institutes are announcing what they are bringing to the microelectronics research factory. With the funding program, Germany wants to achieve international recognition for this key technology of digitization.

The cleanroom technology required for microelectronics alone consumes quite a bit of funding.

The proverbial eagle eye is now also artificially: By means of 3D printing Stuttgart scientists have only a few square millimeters large sensor system manufactured. And that looks extremely sharp – forward and to the side. Where the new technology is needed?

These ship propellers were photographed by a drone: Stuttgart scientists have now developed an artificial eagle eye. The sensor chip with four lenses allows a sharp view to the front and to the side. The technology could benefit not only the automotive industry but also new mini drones.

In Dresden and Heidelberg are the first neurocomputers to have the performance of ant-brains. Researchers around the world can use them for experiments. They have access via the Internet. No one has to be afraid of the thinking computers, assures one of the researchers.

An in-house development by the Dresden researchers is this Bionect chip, which is designed to connect artificial neurons and biological tissue.
