U.S. Lawmakers “Pedal” Tax Credits For E-bikes

E Bike TC 1 Biking-Capitol

Have you heard the big news out of Washington, D.C., this week? No, not that news …

We’re talking about the Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment Act, also known as the EBIKE Act (clever, right?), that was proposed Tuesday by U.S. House of Representatives co-sponsors Earl Blumenauer (Oregon) and Jimmy Panetta (California).

If passed, this legislation would provide a tax credit of 30 percent off (up to $1,500) a new electric bike priced at under $8,000. If you’re one of the many Americans who end up getting money back from the IRS around tax time, this could add to your refund. If you’re eyeing a new Rad model, that’s a potential average credit of $419 in your pocket.

In a statement, Panetta said that this proposal is rooted in the environmental benefits that come from more people jumping on an ebike rather than driving a car.

“Ebikes are not just a fad for a select few, they are a legitimate and practical form of transportation that can help reduce our carbon emission,” the Congressman explained. “By incentivizing the use of electric bicycles to replace car trips through a consumer tax credit, we can not only encourage more Americans to transition to greener modes of transportation, but also help fight the climate crisis.”

The legislation comes on the heels of other bicycle-friendly bills put forward by Blumenauer, the Co-Chair of the Congressional Bike Caucus, including some that would strengthen the nation’s cycling infrastructure and expand tax credits for commuters who bike to work.

“One of the few positive developments of the last year has been the surge in biking. Communities large and small are driving a bike boom,” Blumenauer said in a statement. “Notably, electric bicycles are expanding the range of people who can participate, making bike commuting even easier.”

Our mission from day one has been to revolutionize the world of mobility, and seeing concrete legislative action that’ll motivate more people to turn to ebikes is a surefire sign we’re on the right path.

But like so many bills floated in the nation’s capital, the EBIKE Act won’t pass without a few riders (some legislative humor for ya). In this case, that means Rad riders like you!

If you want to see a consumer tax credit for new e-bikes, contact your Congressional representative and politely ask them to lend their support. Find Your Rep!

And keep an eye on this issue. We’re not counting on seeing this passed by peak riding season and there’s a long road ahead, including making it to the Senate!

Oregon scientists create mechanism to precisely control soundwaves in metamaterials: Theoretical modeling shows that designer materials incorporating drum-like membranes allow precise stoppage and reversal of sound pulses


Eugene, OR | Posted on April 16th, 2021

The discovery was made using theoretical and computational analysis of the mechanical vibrations of thin elastic plates, which serve as the building blocks for the proposed design. The physicists, Pragalv Karki and Jayson Paulose, also developed a simpler minimal model consisting of springs and masses demonstrating the same signal manipulation ability.

“There have been a lot of mechanisms that can guide or block the transmission of sound waves through a metamaterial, but our design is the first to dynamically stop and reverse a sound pulse,” said Karki, a postdoctoral researcher in the UO’s Department of Physics and Institute for Fundamental Science.

The interplay between bending stiffness and the global tension –two physical parameters governing sound transmission in thin plates–is at the heart of their signal-manipulation mechanism. While bending stiffness is a material property, global tension is an externally controllable parameter in their system.

Karki and Paulose, an assistant professor of physics and member of the Institute for Fundamental Science, described their new mechanism, which they call dynamic dispersion tuning, in a paper published online March 29 in the journal Physical Review Applied.

“If you throw a stone onto a pond, you see the ripples,” Karki said. “But what if you threw the stone and instead of seeing ripples propagating outward you just see the displacement of the water going up and down at the point of impact? That’s similar to what happens in our system.”

The ability to manipulate sound, light or any other waves in artificially made metamaterials is an active area of research, Karki said.

Optical or photonic metamaterials, which exhibit properties such as a negative refractive index not possible with conventional materials, were initially developed to control light in ways that could be used to create invisibility cloaks and super lenses.

Their use is being explored in diverse applications such as aerospace and defense, consumer electronics, medical devices and energy harvesting.

Acoustic metamaterials are usually static and unchangeable once produced, and dynamically tuning their properties is an ongoing challenge, Karki said. Other research groups have proposed several strategies for tuning acoustic transmission, ranging from origami-inspired designs to magnetic switching.

“In our case, the tunability comes from the ability to change the tension of the drum-like membranes in real time,” Karki said.

Additional inspiration, Karki and Paulose noted, came from research in the UO lab of physicist Benjamín Alemán. In Nature Communications in 2019, Alemán’s group unveiled a graphene nanomechanical bolometer, a drum-like membrane that can detect colors of light at high speeds and high temperatures. The approach exploits a change in global tension.

While the mechanism in the new paper was identified theoretically and needs to be proven in lab experiments, Karki said, he is confident the approach will work.

“Our mechanism of dynamic dispersion tuning is independent of whether you are using acoustic, light or electronic waves,” Karki said. “This opens up the possibility of manipulating signals in photonic and electronic systems as well.”

Possibilities, he said, include improved acoustic signal processing and computation. Designing acoustic metamaterials based on graphene, such as those developed in Alemán’s lab, could lead to variety of uses like wave-based computing, micromechanical transistors and logic devices, waveguides and ultra-sensitive sensors.

“Our design could be built at the microscale with graphene and at large scales using drum-like membrane sheets,” Karki said. “You strike the chain of drums, creating a particular pattern of sound that moves in one direction, but by tuning the tension of the drums, we can stop the sound and store it for future use. It can be reversed or manipulated into any number of other patterns.”

Abstract:
Encoding information into light, and transmitting it through optical fibers lies at the core of optical communications. With an incredibly low loss of 0.2 dB/km, optical fibers made from silica have laid the foundations of today’s global telecommunication networks and our information society.

New tech builds ultralow-loss integrated photonic circuits


Lausanne, Switzerland | Posted on April 16th, 2021

Such ultralow optical loss is equally essential for integrated photonics, which enable the synthesis, processing and detection of optical signals using on-chip waveguides. Today, a number of innovative technologies are based on integrated photonics, including semiconductor lasers, modulators, and photodetectors, and are used extensively in data centers, communications, sensing and computing.

Integrated photonic chips are usually made from silicon that is abundant and has good optical properties. But silicon can’t do everything we need in integrated photonics, so new material platforms have emerged. One of these is silicon nitride (Si3N4), whose exceptionally low optical loss (orders of magnitude lower than that of silicon), has made it the material of choice for applications for which low loss is critical, such as narrow-linewidth lasers, photonic delay lines, and nonlinear photonics.

Now, scientists in the group of Professor Tobias J. Kippenberg at EPFL’s School of Basic Sciences have developed a new technology for building silicon nitride integrated photonic circuits with record low optical losses and small footprints. The work is published in Nature Communications.

Combining nanofabrication and material science, the technology is based on the photonic Damascene process developed at EPFL. Using this process, the team made integrated circuits of optical losses of only 1 dB/m, a record value for any nonlinear integrated photonic material. Such low loss significantly reduces the power budget for building chip-scale optical frequency combs (“microcombs”), used in applications like coherent optical transceivers, low-noise microwave synthesizers, LiDAR, neuromorphic computing, and even optical atomic clocks. The team used the new technology to develop meter-long waveguides on 5×5 mm2 chips and high-quality-factor microresonators. They also report high fabrication yield, which is essential for scaling up to industrial production.

“These chip devices have already been used for parametric optical amplifiers, narrow-linewidth lasers and chip-scale frequency combs”, says Dr. Junqiu Liu who led the fabrication at EPFL’s Center of MicroNanoTechnology (CMi). “We are also looking forward to seeing our technology being used for emerging applications such as coherent LiDAR, photonic neural networks, and quantum computing.”

New nanoscale device for spin technology: Spin waves could unlock the next generation of computer technology, a new component allows physicists to control them


Aalto, Finland | Posted on April 16th, 2021

Traditional electronics uses electrical charge to carry out computations that power most of our day-to-day technology. However, engineers are unable to make electronics do calculations faster, as moving charge creates heat, and we’re at the limits of how small and fast chips can get before overheating. Because electronics can’t be made smaller, there are concerns that computers won’t be able to get more powerful and cheaper at the same rate they have been for the past 7 decades. This is where spintronics comes in.

“Spin” is a property of particles like electrons in the same way that “charge” is. Researchers are excited about using spin to carry out computations because it avoids the heating issues of current computer chips. ‘If you use spin waves, it’s transfer of spin, you don’t move charge, so you don’t create heating,’ says Professor Sebastiaan van Dijken, who leads the group that wrote the paper.

Nanoscale magnetic materials

The device the team made is a Fabry-Pérot resonator, a well known tool in optics for creating beams of light with a tightly controlled wavelength. The spin-wave version made by the researchers in this work allows them to control and filter waves of spin in devices that are only a few hundreds of nanometres across.

The devices were made by sandwiching very thin layers of materials with exotic magnetic properties on top of eachother. This created a device where the spin waves in the material would be trapped and cancelled out if they weren’t of the desired frequency. ‘The concept is new, but easy to implement,’ explains Dr Huajun Qin, the first author of the paper, ‘the trick is to make good quality materials, which we have here at Aalto. The fact that it is not challenging to make these devices means we have lots of opportunities for new exciting work.’

Wireless data processing and analogue computing

The issues with speeding up electronics goes beyond overheating, they also cause complications in wireless transmission, as wireless signals need to be converted from their higher frequencies down to frequencies that electronic circuits can manage. This conversion slows the process down, and requires energy. Spin wave chips are able to operate at the microwave frequencies used in mobile phone and wifi signals, which means that there is a lot of potential for them to be used in even faster and more reliable wireless communication technologies in the future.

Furthermore, spin waves can be used to do computing in ways that are faster that electronic computing at specific tasks ‘Electronic computing uses “Boolean” or Binary logic to do calculations,’ explains Professor van Dijken, ‘with spin waves, the information is carried in the amplitude of the wave, which allows for more analogue style computing. This means that it could be very useful for specific tasks like image processing, or pattern recognition. The great thing about our system is that the size structure of it means that it should be easy to integrate into existing technology’

Now that the team has the resonator to filter and control the spin waves, the next steps are to make a complete circuit for them. “To build a magnetic circuit, we need to be able to guide the spin waves towards functional components, like the way conducting electrical channels do on electronic microchips. We are looking at making similar structures to steer spin waves” explains Dr Qin.
