Photonics: Beam me up23-May-2012
‘Tractor beams’ of light that pull objects towards them are no longer science fiction. Haifeng Wang at the A*STAR Data Storage Institute and co-workers have now demonstrated how a tractor beam can in fact be realized on a small scale.
Robotics: Gesturing for control23-May-2012
New intelligent algorithms could help robots to quickly recognize and respond to human gestures. Researchers at A*STAR Institute for Infocomm Research in Singapore have created a computer program which recognises human gestures quickly and accurately, and requires very little training.
Engineered materials: Custom-made magnets23-May-2012
A novel approach to designing artificial materials could enable magnetic devices with a wider range of properties than those now available. An international team of researchers have now extended the properties and potential uses of metamaterials by using not one but two very different classes of nanostructures, or metamolecules.
Singapore-made anti-reflective plastics to be commercialised23-May-2012
The innovative plastics offer improved performance and wider viewing angles over existing anti-reflective plastics in the market. This plastic uses a locally-developed nanotechnology method that creates a complex pattern of super tiny structures that mimic the patterns found on a moth’s eye, which has a unique method of diffusing light.
A*STAR’s Data Storage Institute and Taiwan’s National Tsing Hua University Seal Collaboration Agreement on Flexible Cable for Thin Drives10-May-2012
SINGAPORE, 8 May 2012: Singapore’s Data Storage Institute (DSI) has signed a collaboration agreement with Taiwan’s National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) to pursue research on flexible cable which will be assembled into the world’s first 5mm hybrid hard disk drive (HDD), targeted to launch at the end of the year.
