What does the EU halogen ban mean for your business?

What does the EU halogen ban mean for your business?
We all use light bulbs in some shape or form every day, from lamps to spotlights to fairy lights. They are available in all shapes, colours and sizes, and can be tailored to a specific space and purpose. This extensive use does mean they can a big source of energy consumption, something the EU aims to reduce by imposing a ban on the energy wasting halogen light bulbs and encouraging businesses and homeowners alike to switch to more efficient solutions like LEDs.

On the road to terahertz electronics

On the road to terahertz electronics
A team headed by Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger, Physics professors at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), has succeeded for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip using metal antennas only a few nanometres in size, then running the signals a few millimetres above the surface and reading them in again a controlled manner. The technology enables the development of new, powerful terahertz components.
