Physicists at UC Santa Barbara have succeeded in combining laser light with trapped electrons to detect and control the electrons' fragile quantum state without erasing it. This is an important step toward using quantum physics to expand computing power and to communicate over long distances without the possibility of eavesdropping.
Moser Baer Technologies, Inc., the U.S. division of Moser Baer India, Ltd., Universal Display Corporation, and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center today announced a partnership to establish the world's first pilot production facility for Organic Light Emitting Diode lighting panels at STC's Canandaigua location.
Shell and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) today signed an agreement to invest $25 million in the research and development of high value, sustainable technologies designed to drive innovation in energy delivery.
Scientists at JILA and collaborators have demonstrated an improved laser-based 'molecular fingerprinting' technique that picks out traces of key hydrogen-containing and other molecules from a billion other particles in a gas in just 30 seconds or less - performance suitable for breathalyzers for diagnosing disease, measuring trace gases in the atmosphere, detecting security threats and other applications.
With improved hardware and better signal processing, a powerful form of molecular vibration spectroscopy can quickly deliver detailed molecular maps of the contents of cells without damaging them. Earlier studies have suggested that to be useful, the technique would need power levels too high for cells.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the German national metrology institute have used NIST's miniature atom-based magnetic sensor to successfully track a human heartbeat, confirming the device's potential for biomedical applications.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated for the first time the conversion of near-infrared 1,300 nm wavelength single photons emitted from a true quantum source, a semiconductor quantum dot, to a near-visible wavelength of 710 nm.
Als Produzenten von Zucker und Kohlenhydraten spielen Pflanzen eine wichtige Rolle. Auf diesem Gebiet forschen Wissenschaftler der Uni Wuerzburg - mit dem Fernziel, den Zuckerhaushalt landwirtschaftlicher Nutzpflanzen zu beeinflussen.
The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and CEA-Leti, co-founders of the NanoVLSI Alliance, have launched the NanoSystems Partnership Program (NSyP) to accelerate delivery of nanosystems-based innovations to the market.
Tyndall National Institute, UCC announced today, Wednesday, at the 2010 International Power Supply on Chip Workshop in Cork, the development of a new nano-material that will dramatically reduce the operating temperature of silicon chip components and circuits, thereby enhancing the reliability and lifetime of electronics in products ranging from smart phones to automotive electronics.
