|Electronic components join forces to take up 10 times less space on computer chips|
Electronic filters are essential to the inner workings of our phones and other wireless devices. They eliminate or enhance specific input signals to achieve the desired output signals. They are essential, but take up space on the chips that researchers are on a constant quest to make smaller. A new study demonstrates the successful integration of the individual elements that make up electronic filters onto a single component, significantly reducing the amount of space taken up by the device.
|Grasshopper jumping on Bloch sphere finds new quantum insights|

|Break it down: A new way to address common computing problem|
A new algorithm provides a framework for solving complex linear inverse problems that doesn't require a supercomputer and also enhances security and privacy.
|How thoughts could one day control electronic prostheses, wirelessly|
The current generation of neural implants record enormous amounts of neural activity, then transmit these brain signals through wires to a computer. But, so far, when researchers have tried to create wireless brain-computer interfaces to do this, it took so much power to transmit the data that the implants generated too much heat to be safe for the patient. A new study suggests how to solve his problem -- and thus cut the wires.
|Recovering data: Neural network model finds small objects in dense images|
In efforts to automatically capture important data from scientific papers, computer scientists have developed a method that can accurately detect small, geometric objects such as triangles within dense, low-quality plots contained in image data. Employing a neural network approach designed to detect patterns, the model has many possible applications in modern life.

|When Dirac meets frustrated magnetism|
Scientists have discovered one of the largest anomalous Hall effects (15,506 siemens per centimeter at 2 Kelvin) ever observed in the new compound, KV3Sb5. This material has a never-before-seen combination of properties: Dirac physics, frustrated magnetism, 2D exfoliatability, and chemical stability. Aside from future fundamental research studying the interplay of these ingredients, the unique combination has potential for next-generation computing technologies like spintronics and quantum computing.
