DARPA funds partnership between Singapore's Institute of Microelectronics and University of Washington for triple boost to miniaturization efforts

Advances in miniaturisation have led to the increasing adoption of microsystems in a wide array of applications. Continued miniaturisation, however, impacts the assembly of the components, the integration of passive components and overall system performance. To address these challenges, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is funding a research collaboration between the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and University of Washington's Department of Electrical Engineering.

Eindhoven University builds affordable alternative to mega-laser X-FEL

Stanford University in the USA has an X-FEL (X-ray Free Electron Laser) with a pricetag of hundreds of millions. It provides images of 'molecules in action', using a kilometer-long electron accelerator. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have developed an alternative that can do many of the same things. However this alternative fits on a tabletop, and costs around half a million euro.

EU funds project to explore atomic scale and single-molecule logic gate technologies

On January 1, 2011, the European project AtMol will be officially launched for 4 years. AtMol is to open the atomic scale era of molecular computing integrating state of the art atomic scale technologies, new quantum architectures with multi-scale interconnection and packaging techniques for a single molecule to compute and be packaged into a molecular chip.

Quantum dots are not dots

Researchers from the Quantum Photonics Group at DTU Fotonik in collaboration with the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen surprise the scientific world with the discovery that light emission from solid-state photon emitters, the so-called quantum dots, is fundamentally different than hitherto believed.

Packing electrons in a nano box

A research team in Japan succeeded in controlling the few-particle quantum state of a semiconductor quantum dot, and changing its correlation energies. This research achievement will make it possible to develop semiconductor non-linear devices which enable stable drive with low power consumption.
