For the first time, scientists have succeeded in measuring and controlling the lifetime of quantum states with potential use in optoelectronic chips. This achievement is highly significant for the ongoing development of this cutting-edge technology.
By the end of 2008 NT-MDT Co. fulfilled the commitments of delivery of NanoEducator scientific training laboratories for 35 educational organizations in the Russian Federation. The deliveries were carried out in accordance with the Government contracts of the Ministry of education and science of the Russian Federation.
Wissenschaftler des 3. Physikalischen Instituts der Uni Stuttgart haben in Zusammenarbeit mit der britischen Firma element6 Diamanten hergestellt, die 10.000-mal reiner sind als alle bisher bekannten Diamanten.
Almost 70 percent of the companies intend to intensify their efforts to acquire new customers; more than 65 percent want to develop new business fields. This is a result of a survey IVAM Research has conducted in February among 2,300 enterprises and institutes involved in microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials in Europe.
The April issue of the premier scientific magazine Nature Photonics publishes the first experimental proof of all-optical ultra-fast communication signal processing with silicon-based devices for transmission speeds above 100Gbit/s.
The speed at which heat moves between two materials touching each other is a potent indicator of how strongly they are bonded to each other, according to a new study by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Researchers have developed a heat-dissipation method that cools carbon nanotube electronics by utilizing nonconventional radiation in a 'near-field zone' just above the substrate, or surface, on which the nanotubes rest.
