Scientists send first wireless neutrino message

Scientists and researchers at the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have sent a wireless message using neutrinos through nearly 800 feet (240m exactly) of solid stone. The almost massless particles travel at the speed of light and can pass through nearly any matter they encounter. The message transmitted just read "Neutrino" and was sent in binary code.

Non-blinking nanocrystals to create thinner TVs

Non-blinking nanocrystals

Scientists at the University of Rochester working with researchers at Eastman Kodak have created a nanocrystal that constantly emits light instead of regularly wasting energy as heat, as current individual molecules tend to, according to a weekend PhysOrg report. Developing the nanocrystal further could result in brighter LED lights, less expensive lasers and thinner TVs and displays. When the molecule is emitting photons as heat, it goes dark, and is thus said to be blinking.

University shows 1.4GHz cube CPU prototype

Rochester cube processor

The University of Rochester on Monday announced it has a working three-dimensional computer chip it calls the cube and is running at 1.4GHz. The nicknamed Rochester cube takes the concept of three-dimensional circuits to a new level, as its processing functions are optimized vertically in the same way as a regular chipís are optimized horizontally, unlike previous attempts that simply stacked regular chips atop one another. Developed by Eby Friedman, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rochester and faculty director of the processor, and engineering student Vasilis Pavlidis, the 3D chip is described as basically a whole circuit board folded up into a small footprint.
