Plasmonic THz Antennas to Enable Faster On-chip Signal GenerationPlasmonic THz Antennas to Enable Faster On-chip Signal Generation
The second key to this design is to use an asymmetric antenna, which means that the emitter and the receiver, only nanometers apart, have different shapes, with the emitter side featuring more of a curve than the receiver side. It’s important to note that the Munich team is not the first to develop a plasmonic antenna. But past attempts used symmetric antennas, which makes it difficult to pick up the signal because, ultimately, they don’t generate a favorable current for the electrons to easily cross the gap. But the scientists discovered that by using asymmetric antennas (or, as they more accurately refer to them, “nanojunctions”), they could receive a stronger signal.It’s important to stress how small this entire setup is. The distance between the two nanojunctions that a signal will cross is 10 micrometers, about the thickness of a single cotton fiber. The data will be carried by the vibrating electron that is shot across that minuscule gap. You need to have very small gaps, otherwise the electron wouldn’t make it.The electron-exciting laser sends out 20 femtosecond-long pulses, which means that in one second, 50 trillion electrons would make the microscopic trip between nanojunctions. If each one was carrying one bit of data, that works out to a clean 10-terahertz transmission.According to researchers, the team’s creation could be built on a silicon chip, and imagines that someday it could be used for extremely fast signal generation for communications.For now, they are focused on finding a way to control the laser’s phase. They tried controlling the phase, but the laser wasn’t strong enough. Controlling the phase would enable them to create even higher frequency plasmonic antennas. And those higher frequencies will mean even faster processors. Imagine an antenna that could transmit at terahertz frequencies – generally defined as those between 300 GHz and 3 THz. Such an antenna could send and receive data at rates that would be orders of magnitude faster than any device we currently use. Even the 5G networks which will have significantly higher data rates than current technologies operate at frequencies well below 100 GHz.A team at the Technical University of Munich, headed by Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger, has developed a terahertz antenna. The TUM team’s antenna does not send signals over the air. It is designed to use electrons to transfer data across a minuscule gap on the surface of a chip. Their technique could open the door for much faster on-chip signal generation.The antenna uses a quantum property of electrons to transmit very-high-frequency signals across narrow gaps, and could generate signals for on-chip communication at rates far exceeding any technology currently available for moving bits of information across a chip.The process begins with a phase-coherent laser, as the group describes in a recent Nature Communications report. “What is crucial is that it’s phase-stable,” that is, each pulse has the exact same shape. Those laser pulses are used to excite delocalized electrons – those that are “free floating” rather than those attached to any atom in particular. These free-floating electrons, as the name suggests, are free to move between the atoms of the material they find themselves in – in this case, a tiny on-chip antenna.When a photon from the laser pulse strikes one of these delocalized electrons, the electron produces a plasmon wave. These waves, associated with the frequency of a vibrating electron rather than with the wavelength of a traveling photon, have a much shorter wavelength than electromagnetic waves. Shorter wavelengths mean smaller components – the upshot being that plasmonic antennas can transfer a lot of data in a very small space.
The 2020 Yamaha MT-03 has been launched for the US and UK markets.As it shares the 321cc parallel-Twin engine as the Yamaha YZF-R3, it would known as the MT-25 in our market since it’ll adopt the YZF-R25’s 250cc engine.Being a part of the MT-series the model shares the “Dark Side of Japan” DNA with its larger MT-07 and MT-09 siblings, such as the large faux air scoops. It features styling elements of the other two, plus an new and aggressive headlamp with striking LEDs.A new 14-litre tank should see a range of up to a 300 kilometre range. There is also a new LCD screen.But look a little closer and you can see a resemblance to YZF-R3 in terms of the tail section and frame.Indeed, while the diamond-shape frame is from the R3, the suspension features a number of differences. The forks are now upside-down, while the new swingarm is longer and pivots closer to the centre of the bike. The rear monoshock has a stiffer springs in addition to revised preload and rebound damping rates. The manufacturer sees the bike as a great offering to the younger segment of riders.The big question if the MT-25 will ever be sold in Malaysia. The MT-15 and MT-25 are already sold in Thailand and Indonesia to big success.–Ads– The 2020 Yamaha MT-03 has been launched for the US and UK markets. Will it and the MT-15 reach Malaysia? It shares the same DNA as the MT-07 and MT-09.
Nigeria vs Zambia: Rohr reveals why Super Eagles must win on SaturdayNigeria vs Zambia: Rohr reveals why Super Eagles must win on Saturday
Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles Head Coach, has vowed to win Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against the Chipolopolo of Zambia for sick goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme.Rohr said the Eagles were driven to win for Ikeme, who was outstanding when both teams first met in Ndola a year ago, but was now bedridden after he was diagnosed with acute leukemia.Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s game, Rohr said, “The Eagles want to win again for Carl. He’s suffering, that’s not good.“We want to give him the chance to be in Russia.“They know us, so we have to change a few things, be more dangerous so as to surprise them.“They have changed a lot with young players from their U20s, they are a different team from the one we beat in Ndola.“They have to win to stand any chance, while a draw could even be enough for us, but we want to win this game.”
Ao will face Thai boxer Terdsak Jandaeng, the No. 1 contender, in his third title defense.“I’ll turn 28 on the day of the fight. My opponent is the No. 1 contender, so this will be a perfect opportunity to demonstrate my power,” said Ao at a press conference in Tokyo. GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES WBC super featherweight champion Takahiro Ao and WBC bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka will appear in a world doubleheader on April 6 in Tokyo, their Teiken Boxing Gym said on Monday.Fighting at the same Tokyo International Forum with Ao and Yamanaka in a nontitle bout will be former two-division world champion Hozumi Hasegawa, who had to cancel his match in December last year due to a rib fracture.

Cyrus Jones played all 2014 with labrum tear in his hipCyrus Jones played all 2014 with labrum tear in his hip
TUSCALOOSA – When he first learned of his hip injury, Cyrus Jones had two options — surgery and miss games or play through the pain.In the end, there really wasn’t much of an option — the junior cornerback wasn’t going to miss a single game.Sitting out this spring after undergoing surgery in late January to repair a torn labrum in his hip, Jones announced Tuesday that he played all of the 2014 season with the injury, first learning of the pain setback last summer.“As soon as I was diagnosed with it, I knew, eventually, I would need surgery,” Jones said Tuesday. “But being as though I got it diagnosed in the summertime during workouts, I couldn’t get surgery because that would have meant I would have had to sit out during the season. I just had to deal with it through the season.”Jones underwent the surgery on Jan. 12, repairing an injury involving a tear in the ring of cartilage to the outside of the hip joint. The labrum adds cushion and stability to the top of the thighbone within the hip socket.Jones was Alabama’s closest thing to a shutdown corner, starting all 14 games last season while racking up 46 tackles (36 solo) to go along with a team-high 13 pass breakups and tied for the team lead with three interceptions and two forced fumbles.Still, the on-field success didn’t come without its drawbacks.“Throughout the season, I was just kind of getting various types of treatment to kind of counterbalance the pain and stuff like that where I would be OK during games,” Jones said.“It was definitely a lot of pain and irritation, but it wasn’t too strenuous. The treatment and stuff like that helped to maintain it well so it made it possible for me to go out there and play.”Since undergoing the surgery, Jones has been out of action rehabbing and spending practice riding a stationary bike, where he’s working beside senior linebacker Denzel Devall (foot injury).“It’s been bittersweet. I really would like to be out there with the guys, getting better,” Jones said. “It’s hard to sit on the side and kind of watch them going out and competing … it’s hard in that aspect. But I’m enjoying the rest time, too, just taking my time to get back from my injury.”Not having Jones available has allowed several inexperienced defensive backs see important reps with the first and second teams.“We have a lot of players on our team that you can count 12 guys if you count injuries, suspensions, whatever you want to count, that aren’t out there playing,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “And five of them are starters on defense, and three of them would be contributors on offense.“It also affects the continuity and the quality of the players you have out there,” he continued. “But again, we’d rather have those guys back ready and healthy for fall camp because really the whole goal is to be ready for the first game.”Jones indicated he’s feels at roughly 70 percent right now but will continue to take his rehab in stride rather than rush back from the injury.“I probably have a couple more months ‘til I’m fully 100 percent,” Jones said. “I’m just taking my time with it, not trying to rush anything because I don’t want to get back out there and have a setback right away, so that’s something that’s important.”Injured Alabama DT returns to practice: Alabama’s defensive line received a bit of a boost Tuesday with the return of a returning starter.Junior defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson was back participating at practice a week after suffering a sprained ankle and knee in his right leg last Monday.Although he was still wearing a black, non-contact No. 86 jersey, Robinson went through individual position drills during Tuesday’s open viewing period, no longer using the heavy plastic boot he wore last week while riding a stationary bike the last three practices.Robinson, a returning starter at nose guard along what is shaping out to be a ferocious Tide defensive front, was still sporting a heavy knee brace around his right knee.Jones and Devall were still in their regular spots riding stationary bikes.
Soccer The Morobe Football Association was crowned men’s champions in the Besta FA Cup challenge over the weekend to defend their title for two consecutive years. It was a tough challenge for Morobe who fought through before advancing to the grand final against a fancied NCD Public Servants Soccer Association side. The grand final match in Lae between both teams finished at nil-all in regular time, forcing the match into extra time. The first 10 minutes of extra time saw Kila Aisonie open the scoring for NCD PSSA putting them in the lead however their celebrations were short lived when Morobe responded with an equalizer to Eddie Managu. The second half of the extra time was a tight affair with the score still unchanged, forcing the match into a penalty shootout. Morobe goalkeeper made a brilliant save before scoring the winner to prove the difference. Morobe walked away with K20,000 in prize money, while NCD PSSA settled for K15,000. Finishing third, Hekari Soccer Association took home K10,000 and Hagen Central pocketed K5,000. In the women’s division, Port Moresby Soccer Association defeated Morobe Football Association 3-1 in the grand final to retain their champions tag for the second year running and became K20,000 richer. MFA won K15,000 while NCD PSSA collected K10,000 for finishing third and K5,000 went to Madang Soccer Association for finishing fourth. Meanwhile, during the presentation of prizes, PNGFA President John Kapi Natto thanked International Food Corporation for supporting the competition under the tinned fish brand name Besta for 12 years now but expressed disappointment for not being present for the awards. “It would be more fitting if they presented the cup to the winners because they sponsored the competition, Kapi Natto said. “The Besta FA Cup is for all MA’s and associated members throughout the country and open to all. “Being here and following the competition for the past three days, I’ve witnessed the level of football skills displayed by the teams are very high. This has shown that there is consistency in our competition at MA level, Kapi Natto said.
