In 1998, the Nobel Prize in Physics was conferred to the discovery of a new type of quantum fluid with fractional charge excitations, known as Laughlin state. Now, theoretical research proposes a method to generate this kind of states in two-dimensional systems of ultracold atoms, with possible applications in quantum computer.
Nikon has partnered with SUNY's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in a $350 million investment to develop the first of its kind next generation lithography technology on 450mm wafer and create 100 high-tech jobs.
The behaviour of a few particles can have important ramifications for how a system of many particles behaves. In particular, bound states of two, three or more particles can determine how particles will cluster, i.e. how particles are correlated, in a gas or fluid.
Imec has developed a Manganese (Mn)-based self-formed barrier (SFB) process that significantly improves Resistance Capacitance (RC) performance, via resistance and reliability in advanced interconnects. It provides excellent adhesion, film conformality, intrinsic barrier property and reduced line resistance. This technology paves the way towards interconnect Cu metallization into the 7nm node and beyond.
Scientists have launched an ambitious new project, designed to attack nicotine dependence in a radically new way. The research effort will attempt to design a vaccine conferring immunity to nicotine, using nanoscale structures assembled from DNA.
Researchers are analyzing the effectiveness of the sustained release of a bioactive molecule from yoctowells - novel surface-engineered molecular cavities which allow the analysis of the separation, containment and manipulation of individual molecules.
Scientists have developed a new approach for treating a deadly brain cancer that strikes 15,000 in the United States annually and for which there is no effective long-term therapy. The researchers have shown that the approach extends the lives of laboratory animals and are preparing to seek government approval for a human clinical trial.
Today the National Academy of Sciences announced a three-year, $271,930 grant to develop, test and deploy new, sensitive, reliable and affordable inkjet-printed, nanoparticle-based test strips for detecting disease-causing bacteria in drinking water.
