Hybrid Digital-Analog Circuits Can Increase Computational Power of Chaos-Based Systems
Combining digital and analog components in nonlinear, chaos-based integrated circuits can improve their computational power.
Thin Layers of Water Hold Promise for the Energy Storage of the Future
Researchers have found that incorporating atomically thin layers of water into a material makes it able to store and deliver energy much more quickly.
Finding Order and Structure in the Atomic Chaos Where Materials Meet
Researchers have developed a model that accounts for irregularities in how atoms arrange themselves at the interface where two materials meet.

Study Offers Hope, Sheds Light on How Vets Respond to Trauma
A study of military veterans who went through trauma finds that those who have related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are also more likely to experience “post-traumatic growth” – such as an increased appreciation of life, awareness of new possibilities and enhanced inner strength.
Researchers Release First Chemical Map of Dyes from Historic Dye Library
The first chemical “map” of dyes from the Max A. Weaver Dye Library has been released. The information could assist researchers in developing dyes with desirable properties.
Researchers Make the First Flexible Memory Device Using Oxide Ferroelectric Material
Flexible thin films could be useful in wearable memory devices.
Touch-Sensitive, Elastic Fibers Offer New Interface for Electronics
NC State researchers have created elastic, touch-sensitive fibers that can interface with electronic devices.
Study IDs Ways to Encourage ‘Refuge’ Planting, Slowing Resistance to Bt Crops
A study finds a shortfall in the amount of “refuge” cropland being planted in NC – increasing the rate at which crop pests evolve the ability to devour genetically engineered Bt crops.
Beyond Graphene: Advances Make Reduced Graphene Oxide Electronics Feasible
Researchers have developed a way to convert positively charged reduced graphene oxide (rGO) into negatively charged rGO, creating a layered material that can be used to develop rGO-based transistors for use in electronic devices.
