Forscher des Paul-Drude-Instituts haben eine Quelle entwickelt, mit der sie einzelne Photonen in hoher Wiederholrate und in geanau definierten zeitlichen Abstaenden versenden koennen. Sie nutzen dazu akustische Oberflaechenwellen.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany held its NanoCareer Day program on October 22 as part of its continuing effort to prepare students for a growing number of nanotechnology-related career opportunities in the Capital Region and New York State.
A team of engineers from the University of Pennsylvania has transformed simple nanowires into reconfigurable materials and circuits, demonstrating a novel, self-assembling method for chemically creating nanoscale structures that are not possible to grow or obtain otherwise.
The educational website for fluorescence microscopy www.zeiss.com/campus has been supplemented with sections on Spectral Imaging and Fluorescent Proteins and now also provides comprehensive information on these topics.
The pair laid the foundation for a modern approach to the chemistry and physics of materials. Their methodology was revolutionary, increasing the speed of simulations and propelling a major force in science. Such simulations are now used in physics, materials science, chemistry, semiconductors, surface science, catalysis, biological processes, mineralogy, and the new field of nano-sized structures, including industrial applications.
Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have uncovered the physical mechanism by which arrays of nanoscale pillars can be grown on polymer films with very high precision, in potentially limitless patterns.
HRL scientists announced today they have fabricated and demonstrated graphene-on-silicon field effect transistors (FETs) at full wafer scale - a revolutionary advancement in electronics that will enable unprecedented capabilities in high-bandwidth communications, imaging and radar systems.
Researchers from the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente, working with American researchers, have succeeded in using an electrical signal to control both the elastic and the magnetic properties of a nanomaterial at a very localized level.
For his PhD at the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Science and Engineering Assistant Xudong Wang was part of a team that developed a piezoelectric nanogenerator and experimented with a variety of materials to power it.
Drugs based on engineered proteins represent a new frontier for pharmaceutical makers. Even after they discover a protein that may form the basis of the next wonder drug, however, they have to confront a long-standing problem: how to produce large quantities of the protein in a highly pure state. A research team may have found a new solution in an enzymatic 'food processor' they can activate at will.
A new paper describes a highly simplified model cell that not only sheds light on the way certain real cells generate electric voltages, but also acts as a tiny battery that could offer a practical alternative to conventional solid-state energy-generating devices.
If the promise of nanotechnology is to be fulfilled, nanoparticles will have to be able to make something of themselves. An important advance towards this goal has been achieved by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory who have found a simple and yet powerfully robust way to induce nanoparticles to assemble themselves into complex arrays.
