X-Ray Camera Captures 4.5 Million Frames Per Second

Researchers at the Science and Technology Facilities Council in the United Kingdom have created an X-Ray camera that lets you see 3D images of real individual molecules. The camera can capture images at 4.5 million frames per second.

To put some perspective on that number, the human eye perceives the real world at around 30-45 frames per second. The camera functions by using a superconducting accelerator that produces X-ray flashes a billion times brighter than normal cameras.

IBM Makes First Graphene Circuit W/ Exponential Power

IBM has just introduced the world’s first integrated circuit, that is made of carbon allotrope graphene. CAG is a semiconductor that could push clock speeds much further than the traditional silicon-based wafers. Graphene has a microscopic crystal structure that allows processors to use smaller processes than silicon technology, allowing extremely large advances in processor clock speeds.

A jump like this would be like going from a megabyte to a gigabyte. IBM has currently demonstrated graphene-based transistors running at 100GHz, two and a half times faster than the current 40GHz (state-of-the-art transistors).
