Ionic liquid's makeup is measurably non-uniform at the nanoscale

Researchers at Texas Tech University, Queen’s University in Belfast, Ireland, the University of Rome and the National Research Council in Italy recently made a discovery about the non-uniform chemical compositions of ionic liquids that could lead to greater understanding and manipulation of these multi-purpose, designer solvents.

Bowtie-shaped antennae function as the first tunable nano colorsorters

Looking sharp and looking for light - Berkeley Lab researchers have engineered a new class of bowtie-shaped devices that capture, filter and steer light at the nanoscale. These 'nano-colorsorter' devices act as antennae to focus and sort light in tiny spaces, a useful technique for harvesting broadband light for color-sensitive filters and detectors.

Targeting tiny contacts

Today, basic units of computer chips are often thinner than a human hair. However, electric current flow is determined not only by the semiconductor components, but also by their interconnects. Dr. Regina Hoffmann from the KIT Physical Institute studies the structure and electronic properties of these nanocontacts and has now been the first researcher in Karlsruhe to be awarded the renowned ERC Starting Grant of the European Research Council for her project.
