           Evolving smart grids combine electric power grid technologies with advanced information and communications technologies to create sustainable energy systems. In electric power grids, critical control related communication has typically been carried over dedicated communications links. Going forward, smart grids will more extensively utilize the flexibility provided by public layer 3 and 5G networks. This will […]

           Chiral magnetism or more specifically topological magnetic skyrmions in chiral magnets are one of the most exciting current topics in condensed matter physics. Magnetic skyrmions are two-dimensionally localised magnetic excitations that are metastable over macroscopic times and behave like single particles. They are promising for low-power memory and/or logic architectures due to their small size […]

           The combination of optical components with electronics on the same microchip can potentially solve the bandwidth bottleneck in modern computers and allow devices with decreased power consumption. Since the integration of well-performing III-V-based lasers (e.g. InGaAs, GaSb or InP) with the mature Si-based electronics proves challenging especially from a technological point of view, solutions within […]

           Recent, rapid progress in electronics unveiled a new horizon in experimental techniques, especially in imaging. For example, the beamline ID15 at ESRF is now able to record 2016×2016 x-ray diffraction images with stunning frequency of 1 kHz [1]. With continuous progress in networking devices and detectors/scintillators, the breakthrough towards GHz region is only matter of […]
