Good vibrations: New atom-scale products on horizon

— 23 Aug 2010 18:00 | Technology

The generation of an electric field by the compression and expansion of solid materials is known as the piezoelectric effect, and it has a wide range of applications ranging from everyday…

MIT researchers create fibres that can detect and produce sound

— 13 Jul 2010 13:07 | Technology

For centuries, 'man-made fibres' meant the raw stuff of clothes and ropes; in the information age, it's come to mean the filaments of glass that carry data in communications networks.…
