New nanoscale device reveals behavior of individual electrons
Laptop computers can generate enough heat that, in rare cases, they actually catch fire. While engineers have a great grasp of how to control electrical charge in circuits, they have a hard time getting rid of the heat created by flowing electrons. What's missing is a fundamental understanding of how individual electrons generate heat.
