Scientists of the School of Natural Sciences of Far Eastern Federal University (SNS FEFU) with colleagues from Russia, South Korea, and Australia suggest the breaking new ground approach to manage spin-electronic properties and functionality of the thin-film magnetic nanosystems. The method is important for the development of a new generation of tiny electronics (spin-orbitronics) and superfast high-capacity computer memory. A related article appears in NPG Asia Materials.

Scientists from the SNS FEFU Laboratory for Thin Film Technologies propose to control the functionality of a magnetic nanosystem through the surface roughness of a magnetic film sandwiched between heavy metal and a capping layer.
Modulating the roughness amplitude on the bottom and top surfaces (interfaces) of the magnetic film in the range of less than a nanometer, which is about the size of atoms, the researchers have maximized useful

(Free Webinar) Create A Student Safety Bubble With Modern Bus Technology

Fight illegal passing to save lives.

As schools reopen for in-person classes, it once more becomes apparent that illegal school bus passing is a rampant problem. More than 17 million stop-arm violations occurred in the U.S. over the 2018-2019 school year. Each time a driver passes a school bus with its stop-arm extended, that driver risks hitting a student rider. One violation is too many; millions are unacceptable.

Join leaders from Zonar and BusPatrol as they discuss modern safety and sanitization technology options available to protect student riders – funded entirely by stop-arm violators.

Researchers built a battery-free Game Boy

Most portable electronic gadgets these days ship with rechargeable batteries… and many modern smartphones and other devices support fast charging that lets you refuel quickly.

But what if you didn’t need a battery at all?

A team of researchers have developed a proof-of-concept handheld gaming device that doesn’t use a traditional battery. Instead it draws power from sunlight and from… you.

Don’t expect to see this battery-free Game Boy on store shelves anytime soon though.

Developed by researchers at Northwestern University in Illinois and the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, the prototype is designed to look like Nintendo’s classic handheld console, and it even plays games from Game Boy cartridges.

But unlike a battery-powered Game Boy, this device has a capacitor that holds a small charge without the use of any chemicals. One of the project’s co-leads, Josiah Hester, says that unlike a battery, capacitors have no chemicals

The design of the Victrola VTA-600B-ESP takes classic Bluetooth record players, combines modern technology, and creates a hybrid playback device. And with 8 ways to play music, Victrola’s motto should be “Why not?” That alone makes it one of the best record players turntables, with great sound quality to boot.

Why We Like It – Victrola VTA-600B-ESP Review

Underneath its throwback design is a record player that includes a CD cassette player, USB player, AM/FM radio, RCA, 3.5mm aux-in, Bluetooth, and even a headphone jack.

scientists developed a new way to charge gadgets

MOSCOW, Aug. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Scientists from NUST MISIS have developed a new type of energy-efficient devices – thermocells that convert heat into energy. This will make possible creation of portable batteries that can be applied to virtually any surface, including clothing, to generate electricity directly from the surface of the body. The results are presented in the Renewable Energy journal.

Thermoelectricity – electricity obtained from heat due to temperature potential differences – is one of the most promising areas of “green energy”. This potential difference (the so-called temperature gradients) surrounds us everywhere – a building heated in the sun, a working transport, even the heat of the human body. The problem is that the modern thermoelectrochemical cells (thermocells) have a rather low output power.

Scientists from NUST MISIS have found solutions to this problem by developing a new type of thermocell consisting of metal oxide electrodes and
