    Marist College students Zachary Meath (on left) and Mary Miller demonstrate a cloud computing invention that--via the swipe of a finger on a smartphone or tablet--can prevent costly voice and data communications service disruptions caused by hurricanes and other natural disasters. Meath and Miller are collaborating with IBM engineers and Marist faculty to test the innovation, which can enable network operators to slash--from days to minutes--the time it takes to move voice and data services to a safe location. The invention is being demonstrated to clients and is expected to be commercially available in 2014. (Credit: IBM)

    Optical image of a typical ionic liquid (IL) gated device with a droplet of IL on top of the gate electrode and the oxide channel. The gold squares are pads used to make contact to the device via wire-bonding. On right is the magnified image of the device showing the channel (brownish yellow) and the gold electrical contacts (bright yellow). The contacts on the right and left of the channel are the source and drain contacts. The four other contact are used for 4-wire resistance & Hall measurements. (Credit: IBM)

    On the left is a mature and healthy MRSA biofilm. After the hydrogel is applied, the biofilm is destroyed as seen on the right. The small portion of cells left have drastically disrupted membrane, preventing resistance. This type of biofilm disruption has not been reported in other antimicrobial hydrogels/synthetic polymers.

    Date added: 28 Oct 2012

    IBM researcher Hongsik Park observes different solutions of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes, borne out of chemistry, have largely been laboratory curiosities as far as microelectronic applications are concerned. Carbon nanotubes naturally come as a mix of metallic and semiconducting species and need to be placed perfectly on the wafer surface to make electronic circuits. For device operation, only the semiconducting kind of tubes is useful which requires essentially complete removal of the metallic ones to prevent errors in circuits. (Credit: IBM)

    Date added: 28 Feb 2012

    A picture of IBM’s “3D” superconducting qubit device where a qubit (about 1mm in length) is suspended in the center of the cavity on a small Sapphire chip. The cavity is formed by closing the two halves, and measurements are done by passing microwave signals to the connectors. Despite the apparent large feature size (the cavity is about 1.5 inches wide) for this single qubit demonstration, the team believes it is possible to scale such a system to hundreds or thousands of qubits.
