A disordered network that is capable of detecting ordered patterns: it sounds contradictory, but it comes close to the way our brain works. Researchers of the University of Twente developed a brain-inspired network like this. A big step forward is that is based on silicon technology and can be operated at room temperature.
Scientists from the University of Twente and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facilty (ESRF) discovered a new method to look deep inside a 3D nanostructure. Their ‘traceless X-ray tomography’ (TXT) can be used for photonics, electron chips and memories, for example.
Researchers at the University of Twente developed a glass microchip for ultrafast separation and purification of DNA fragments. According to the scientists, the new chip is capable of fractionating DNA fragments within just a few minutes.
