The MONA Nanophotonics Technology Roadmap now available

During 2 years, the MONA ('Merging Optics and Nanotechnologies') consortium has been working through workshops, symposia and expert interviews at establishing a roadmap for photonics and nanotechnologies in Europe. Almost 300 people from industry and academia have been involved in the construction of this roadmap that gives insight into the future of materials, equipment, processes and applications. It also highlights the European position and outlook with respect to nanophotonics, and offers recommendations.

Shear ingenuity: Tweaking the conductivity of nanotube composites

New measurements by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have uncovered an intriguing wrinkle. For a given CNT concentration, the electrical properties of the composite can be tuned from being a conductor to a non-conductor simply by changing processing conditions - basically how fast the polymer flows.

IMEC realized full CMOS multiple antenna receiver for 60 GHz

At today's IEEE International Solid State Circuit Conference, IMEC introduced its prototype of a 60GHz multiple antenna receiver, and invites industry to join its 60GHz research program. The 60GHz band offers massive available bandwidth that enables very high bit rates of several Gbits-per-second at distances up to 10 meters (about 33 feet).
