Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have recently demonstrated a breakthrough in the quantum control of photons, the energy quanta of light. This is a significant result in quantum computation, and could eventually have implications in banking, drug design, and other applications.
Das geplante NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum an der Universitaet Duisburg-Essen (UDE) ist in der diesjaehrigen Begutachtungsrunde des Wissenschaftsrats zur Foerderung empfohlen worden. Wenn sich die gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz diesem Votum anschliesst, werden rund 43,3 Millionen Euro an die Universitaet Duisburg-Essen fliessen.
During their experiments the Empa scientists observed that the excited molecules began to hop about and move around, rotating about their own axes. They also underwent very rapid 'inversion', that is, flipping over into their mirror image shape.
Substantial advances for applications of nanocrystals in the fields requiring a continuous output of photons and high quantum efficiency may soon be realized due to discovery of non-blinking semiconductor nanocrystals.
NTSI and CTSI today announced today that the recently held TechConnect World trio of conferences, which included Clean Technology '09, Nanotech '09, and the TechConnect Summit events, drew a record number of attendees, speakers, and vendors to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
The chemical mechanism that occurs on the surface of an automotive catalytic converter has been deciphered thanks to an observation speed record established by Frederic Thibault-Strarzyk at the Laboratoire Catalyse et Spectrochimie in Caen.
A team of physicists and engineers have demonstrated all-fibre quantum logic, where single photons are generated and used to perform the contolled-NOT quantum logic gate in optical fibres with high fidelity.
Leading lithographers from North America, Asia and Europe will gather in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 13-17 for the 2009 International Workshop on EUV Lithography to discuss potential solutions to critical technical issues on bringing extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) into high-volume manufacturing.
