Femtosecond Electronics With Plasmonic Hot Electron Nano-emitters

A team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) physicists Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger has found success for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip. They made this possible by using asymmetric metal antennas only a few nanometers in dimension, then running the signals a few millimeters above the surface and receiving them in a controlled way. Traditional el ...

Particle sensor with LoRa

Two PCBs from earlier projects were used in this project: LoRa breakout board Sensor PCB with Si7013 humidity sensor from multisensor LoRa project … and particle sensor. Particle sensors could be cheap and easy to use. Disadvantage of lowest cost PM sensors is lack of “calibration”. The best method to measure particle content dispensed in the air is to collect the air sample and analyse it off-line in the l ...
