Good vibrations for the future of computing

Good vibrations for the future of computing
  Vibrating mechanical switches that can be cascaded to perform complex computational operations could take computing significantly further than today's technologies. KAUST researchers have demonstrated an alternative technology based on mechanical vibrations.

Study on molecular doping yields better semiconductor designs

An understanding of why tungsten-doped thin films degrade so rapidly in air may lead to better designs for semiconductor technologies. A combination of experiments and theory have helped researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) to improve the understanding of fundamental physics questions about molecular doping—these will underpin the development of organic solar cells and field effect transistors.

Paving the way to touch-sensitive robots

Fabrics containing flexible electronics are appearing in many novel products, such as clothes with in-built screens and solar panels. More impressively, these fabrics can act as electronic skins that can sense their surroundings and could have applications in robotics and prosthetic medicine. Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, have now developed smart threads that detect the strength and location of pressures exerted on them.

Artificial skin sensors made from sticky notes

Artificial skin sensors made from sticky notes
Everyday materials from the kitchen drawer, such as aluminum foil, sticky note paper, sponges and tape, have been used by a team of electrical engineers from KAUST to develop a low-cost sensor that can detect external stimuli, including touch, pressure, temperature, acidity and humidity.
