Researchers from the University of Leeds and Sheffield University have
created a way to move data through magnetic nanowires by using surface
acoustic waves as the motivating force. Being developed for use in
so-called racetrack solid-state memory,
the researchers claim that using sound waves for data transfer should
markedly increase computer processing speeds while vastly reducing power
Further to the mental anguish, a lot of time in a hospital bed can bring about some agonizing physical discomfort. This is most commonly brought about by skin ulcers and bedsores, which threaten to evolve into dangerous and potentially deadly infections if left untreated. But a British research team has happened upon a technique that promises to cut the healing time of these and other chronic wounds by around a third, using simple low-intensity ultrasounds.
