Nanoscientist receives highest honor U.S. government bestows on young scientists or engineers

UC Riverside's Chun Ning (Jeanie) Lau has received a national honor that few outstanding researchers who are beginning their independent research careers are given. Lau, an associate professor of physics, is one of the recipients of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) for the 2008 competition. PECASE represents the highest honor a beginning scientist or engineer can receive in the United States.

DNA sorts out carbon nanotubes

DNA could be the answer to sorting different kinds of carbon nanotubes, say US researchers. Short strings of synthetic DNA wind onto nanotubes in a very sequence-dependent way, which has allowed researchers to separate 12 of the most common types of tubes from the inevitable mixtures that form when nanotubes are synthesised.

Miniaturized lasers can emit quantum light

The discovery of this quantization of the light field has opened up a new field of physics - quantum optics. In modern lasers the light emission can take place within a picosecond, a 1000 times faster than has ever been detected before in photon sequence measurements. A team in Germany made a major breakthrough: in several years of work the worldwide first detector has been developed which has the necessary temporal resolution.
