  World's first tunable broadband RF device emerges

Photo of article A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València's iTEAM (El Instituto de Telecomunicaciones y Aplicaciones Multimedia) in Spain has created the first, tunable broadband radio frequency (RF) photonic phase shifter. Because it is based on a single semiconductor element, the device will be cheap to manufacture and help save up to 80% on energy consumption. The study was funded in part by the GOSPEL ('Governing the speed of light') project, which was backed under the 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to the tune of EUR 2.19 million. The findings of the study are published in the journal Optics Express.

  Computer modelling shows release of carbon into atmosphere

Photo of article A new international research study suggests that changes in the Earth's climate will trigger the release of billions of tonnes of carbon trapped in high-latitude permafrost into the Earth's atmosphere by the end of the 21st century. The study, presented in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), reveals that this carbon release could in turn speed up global warming. The research was funded in part by the COMBINE ('Comprehensive modelling of the Earth system for better climate prediction and projection') project which has received almost EUR 8 million under the Environment Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
