The PhD thesis by Carlos Echeverria Arrondo, Doctor in Physics from the Public University of Navarre and entitled 'On doped semiconductor quantum dots and magnetic nanowires', studies the behaviour and properties of nanometric-scale semiconductor crystals.
Physiker der TU Graz publizierten ihre neuesten Ergebnisse auf dem Gebiet der Halbleitertechnologie: Sie beantworteten auf Basis einer quantenmechanischen Simulation grundlegende Fragen zur Aenderung von Grenzflaecheneigenschaften von Elektrodenmaterialien mit organischen Molekuelen.
Michigan Technological University's Physics Department sees itself poised on the brink of greatness. Richard and Elizabeth Henes agree. Longtime and generous supporters of Michigan Tech, the couple has donated another $700,000 to the University to upgrade research facilities in Fisher Hall, including infrastructure improvements.
Imagine a world where pacemakers never need new batteries and a walk through a park keeps your mp3 player at full charge. Dr. Yong Shi, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, is developing the technology to make those dreams a reality.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new organic solvent process that may and open up new possibilities for using noble metals in cancer therapeutics, microelectronics and other applications.
The Georgia Tech-led Nanomedicine Center for Nucleoprotein Machines has received an award of $16.1 million for five years as part of its renewal by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The eight-institution research team plans to pursue development of a clinically viable gene correction technology for single-gene disorders and demonstrate the technology's efficacy with sickle cell disease.
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) today announced the recognition of outstanding research contributions by 63 life scientists from 14 countries. The researchers are awarded the life-long honour of EMBO membership, joining almost 1500 of the world's leading molecular biologists.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have found a way to optimize the development of DNA self-assembling materials, which hold promise for technologies ranging from drug delivery to molecular sensors. The key to the advance is the discovery of the 'Goldilocks' length for DNA strands used in self-assembly - not too long, not too short, but just right.
Wie die Zeitschrift Nature in der Ausgabe vom 28.10.2010 berichtet, zeigt die Hamburger Forschergruppe von Prof. Wiesendanger erstmals, dass im Labor einzelne Quantenbits in einem Halbleiter nun auch elektrisch adressiert werden koennen.
Materials scientists at the Saarland University and the Material Engineering Center Saarland have come up with a laser technology that allows for precise working on materials' surfaces. The laser beams generate 3-dimensional patterns and change the material's inner structure only at an extremely thin surface layer.
Astronomers have discovered bucket loads of buckyballs in space. They used NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope to find the little carbon spheres throughout our Milky Way galaxy - in the space between stars and around three dying stars. What's more, Spitzer detected buckyballs around a fourth dying star in a nearby galaxy in staggering quantities - the equivalent in mass to about 15 of our moons.
Scientists are reporting development of a new approach for dealing with offensive household and other odors - one that doesn't simply mask odors like today's room fresheners, but eliminates them at the source.
