TUT’s new promotional video titled Research is the key to the future” takes you on a breath-taking visible journey into the world of science, retracing the commercial history of Tampere and reaching for the celebrities to supply a glimpse into the way forward for scientific exploration. This past school 12 months a new activity, LEGO MAGLEV, was introduced to our Technology Students! We’ve got designed and created a totally new and original Maglev Monitor that has two rows of very highly effective ceramic magnets that are positioned on both aspect of a track made up of Lego Bricks. Our students are actually enjoying the Lego Maglev exercise and have discovered it both fun and challenging. We at present in the technique of finishing the fifty foot monitor that we’ve got placed in the middle of our present CO2 Track. We’re greater than midway completed with this and look to finish the monitor before the top of the 2nd Quarter. This can permit the students to race their Maglev trains at full velocity for an extended distance.
With a view to create sub micron vias between metal layers on silicon IC circuits, the tungsten stuffed through processes have been in a relentless state of development over the past 15 years. Processing is complicated, expensive, and tough to breed. The introduction of galvanic cells, by way of undercutting, and exposed plugs are just among the plagues which have hit a number of customers of the technology. Mentioned on this paper is an alternate method to the complicated tungsten crammed by way of interconnect process. The proposed course of yields properly at sub micron geometries, is easy to carry out, and is cheap in comparison with the tungsten stuffed by way of course of. Contact resistance improves drastically over the usual tungsten process. … Read More
