MIT shows off one trillion FPS camera and laser

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have showed off a camera system that can capture images at an unprecedented visual data rate of one trillion frames per second. The research is detailed in the latest issue of MITnews. At the heart of the system is a streak camera modified with a narrowly slit aperture.

System offers 5X capacity of capacitors

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed new ways to fabricate lithium ion batteries with performance characteristics that bridge the gap between standard power cells and capacitors. The technology takes advantage of carbon nanotubes coated in oxygen-containing chemicals, a method which allows the tubes to work as the positive electrode.

MIT develops chip cooling using polyethylene

MIT gives polyethylene metal-like properties

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said they have developed a process to turn the most common polymer, polyethylene, into a metal-like heat conductor that is still an electrical insulator. The process does endow the polymer to conduct heat in only one direction, however, unlike metals which conduct equally well in all directions. This characteristic may make the materials ideal for use in drawing heat away from objects that include computer chips.
