Bordeaux : l’éolienne d’Adv Tech cherche un vent porteur

Bordeaux : l’éolienne d’Adv Tech cherche un vent porteur | Design for reliability | Scoop.it
En 2011, l’universitaire Arnaud Curutchet a mis au point la première éolienne basée sur le principe du rotor épicycloïdal. Une révolution qui, après avoir montré son efficacité, sa fiabilité et sa rentabilité, recherche le “vent porteur” de partenariats industriels et financiers pour se développer.

Here Come 5 Dimensions: 5D Stores Much More Data Than 3D

Here Come 5 Dimensions: 5D Stores Much More Data Than 3D | Design for reliability | Scoop.it
Glass media that stores data in 3-spatial and 2-optical dimensions could outlast us all

 

An experimental computer memory format uses five dimensions to store data with a density that would allow more than 300 terabytes to be crammed onto a standard optical disc. But unlike an optical disc, which is made of plastic, the experimental media is quartz glass. Researchers have long been trying to use glass as a storage material because it is far more durable than existing plastics.

 

A team led by optoelectronics researcher Jingyu Zhang at the University of Southampton, in the U.K., has demonstrated that information can be stored in glass by changing its birefringence, a property related to how polarized light moves through the glass.

 

In conventional optical media, such as DVDs, you store data by burning tiny pits on one or more layers on the plastic disc, which means you're using three spatial dimensions to store information. But in Zhang's experiment, he and colleagues exploit two additional, optical dimensions.

 

When their data-recording laser marks the glass, it doesn’t just make a pit: it changes two parameters of the birefringence of the glass. The researchers set these parameters, called slow axis orientation and strength of retardance, by controlling the polarization and intensity of their laser beam. Add the two optical dimensions to three spatial coordinates and the result is "5D data storage," as Zhang calls it.

 

Previous attempts at storing data in glass consisted of burning tiny holes into the material, but that approach means that an optical microscope is required to read out the data. Zhang's goal is to write data into glass in a format readable with lasers, like existing optical discs, to keep data-reading costs down.

 

The writing costs will be higher, though, since changing birefringence in glass requires fine control of a laser's polarization and intensity. Earlier attempts involved rotating the laser and using an attenuator, Zhang says, but that could take several seconds between writing operations, making it far too slow for practical applications.

 

Instead Zhang and colleagues bounced the beam of their ultrafast writing laser off a tiny, commercially available LCD-like screen called a spatial light modulator, or SLM (see illustration below). It changes its reflectivity quickly in response to electrical charges, giving the team fine control over the intensity of the reflected beam.
