Improving carbon superlattices for quantum electronics

  Researchers at the Nanoscale Transport Physics Laboratory at the School of Physics, University of the Witwatersrarnd (Wits) have found a technique to improve carbon superlattices for quantum electronic device applications. Superlattices are made up of alternating layers of very thin semiconductors, just a few nanometres thick.These layers are so thin that the physics of […]

What can FPGAs do for a renewable energy system?

  In typical renewable energy systems (RES) functionalities such as power conversion control and monitoring are implemented on custom-built embedded boards. This is done using microcontrollers/digital signal processors (DSPs) that have fixed architectures, often limiting the kind of functionalities that a power converter designer wants to implement in their system. On the other hand, field […]
