Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Edwin L. Thomas, head of MIT's Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Morris Cohen Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, was a co-author of a new paper, published on March 10 in the journal Nano L.tters, that describes this creation of phononic crystals in the hypersonic range (that is, above the frequency range of sound, and thus can be considered in the range of heat).

  • "One-D systems are still preferable for their ease of fabrication, and can offer particular insight into the basic physical mechanics of phononic crystals," he says.

  • A direct relation between NPR and interesting phononic (wave guiding) properties is still missing.

  • Katia and al. I would lilke to add to the discussion a few of my own papers (joint with F. Scarpa and other authors) which show interesting phononic properties of auxetic lattices:

    New nanomesh material created: Silicon-based film may lead to efficient thermoelectric devices

  • Yet even if they can, phononic computing is unlikely to threaten electronics because phonons travel a lot slower than electrons.

  • By the way, we have tried to do some work about phononic / photonic crystals.

  • As Painter notes, there has been a rich history of research into both photonic and phononic crystals, which use tiny energy traps called bandgaps to capture quanta of light or sound within their structures. - latest science and technology news stories
