The U.S. is the world’s largest consumer of energy. As a nation, our demand on the national electrical grid is creating an exorbitant amount of unnecessary costs and security risks. This grid suffers weaknesses ranging from overtaxed capabilities and outdated equipment to susceptibility from cyber threats. As a result, it has become a source of vulnerability for our critical assets, including the DoD facilities, which rely on it to support our armed forces at home…"The fragile electric grid needs R&D investment in smart-grid technologies for a smarter, more secure electric system"
Scientists at IBM have discovered an innovative way to measure and visualize charge distribution at the molecular level. This is a major breakthrough for nanotechnologists, as it provides an avenue to better understanding single-molecule switching, and can help provide further insight into how bonds form between atoms and molecules. Big Blue’s discovery is likely to help further research in everything from computer science to biology to solar energy. It’s all in the technique Measuring…"Scientists at IBM have discovered an innovative way to measure and visualize charge distribution at the molecular level."
Mobile operators are facing huge challenges as the demand for broadband mobile services rise in an exponential rate. Many are migrating their networks from 2G/3G to 4G LTE technologies to support the bandwidth demand and service offerings that can improve their revenues and support the explosive growth of smartphones, tablets and other smart Internet-enabled devices. While 2G/3G technology was designed to deliver voice services with small amounts of data (mainly SMS texts, emails) 4G LTE…"Mobile operators are facing huge challenges as the demand for broadband mobile services rise"
