European experts in nanotechnology, optoelectronics and quantum physics have advanced the generation, detection and manipulation of single photons in semiconductors. Their discoveries bring practical single-photon and quantum applications significantly closer.
Nanotechnologie und speziell Nanopartikel eroeffnen neue, ungeahnte Moeglichkeiten fuer die Pharmazie und die Medizin. Das Potenzial dieser winzigen Partikel steht im Mittelpunkt einer Konferenz, zu der namhafte Experten und Nachwuchswissenschaftler aus der ganzen Welt an der Universitaet des Saarlandes zusammenkommen.
Building on his Nobel Prize-winning work creating fluorescent proteins that light up the inner workings of cells, a team of researchers led by Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Roger Tsien, PhD, professor of pharmacology, chemistry and biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego and the Moores UCSD Cancer Center has developed biological probes that can stick to and light up tumors in mice.
Forscher am Institut fuer Halbleitertechnik an der Technischen Universitaet Braunschweig entwickeln gemeinsam mit Kollegen an der Universitaet Princeton (New Jersey, USA) und an der TU Muenchen neuartige Bauelemente fuer zukuenftige Computerchip-Generationen.
A team led by Shu Wang at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology of A*STAR, Singapore, has now designed a new polymer coating that protects viral vectors - making them resistant to serum within the body.
Researchers have developed a rigorous two-dimensional quantum model of the 'gate-all-around' nanowire configuration, leading to a better match with experimental data and highlighting the importance of quantum effects.
A collaboration between researchers at Northwestern University's Center for Catalysis and scientists at Oxford University has produced a new approach for understanding surfaces, particularly metal oxide surfaces, widely used in industry as supports for catalysts.
Using arrays of long, thin silicon wires embedded in a polymer substrate, a team of scientists from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has created a new type of flexible solar cell that enhances the absorption of sunlight and efficiently converts its photons into electrons.
