Researchers use metamaterials to observe giant photonic spin Hall effect

Researchers have once again demonstrated the incredible capabilities of metamaterials - artificial nanoconstructs whose optical properties arise from their physical structure rather than their chemical composition. Engineering a unique two-dimensional sheet of gold nanoantennas, the researchers were able to obtain the strongest signal yet of the photonic spin Hall effect, an optical phenomenon of quantum mechanics that could play a prominent role in the future of computing.

Innovative graphene technologies: Developments and characterisation

In order to collect vital information on graphene, this book is compiled in two volumes. Volume 1 is specifically meant for the beginners who want to understand the science and technology associated with the nanomaterial. The first objective of this book is to furnish detailed information on the manufacturing or syntheses of graphene and related materials in the lab without the need of special equipments. The chapters are written systematically so that it is easy to understand science, engineering and technology behind the material.

How to manufacture printed electronics - Live demonstration

On April 17-18, the Printed Electronics Europe conference and exhibition in Berlin, Germany, will feature "Manufacturing Street" - a live, multi-technology, printed electronics demonstration. Being part of the exhibition, this years' Manufacturing Street brings together seven organisations in the supply chain who will demonstrate a number of printing and process steps in interactive sessions throughout the event, printing functional inks and assembling printed and conventional electronics devices.

Quantum computers counting on carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes can be used as quantum bits for quantum computers. A study by physicists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen has shown how nanotubes can store information in the form of vibrations. Up to now, researchers have experimented primarily with electrically charged particles. Because nanomechanical devices are not charged, they are much less sensitive to electrical interference.
