A research collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania and Duke University has shown a new a way to design transparent conductors using metal nanowires that could enable less expensive - and flexible - touchscreens.
Carlo Segre, Duchossois Leadership Professor of Physics at Illinois Institute of Technology, has received a $3.4 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-E) to develop a breakthrough battery technology that may more than double the current range of electric vehicles, increase safety, reduce costs and simplify recharging.
A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering have solved a problem that previously presented a serious hurdle for the use of graphene in electronic devices.
Researchers from the universities in Mainz, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Ulm have proposed a new platform for quantum simulation. In a theoretical paper, they show that a combined system of ultracold trapped ions and fermionic atoms could be used to emulate solid state physics.
A collaboration between biotechnology company Cytomatrix;,Geelong based engineering firm, Austeng, and Deakin University will develop a world-first pilot manufacturing plant for the production of short nanofibres.
Civil engineering postgraduate student studying carbon nanotubes, Kate McDonell, will represent the University of Sydney in the Trans-Tasman Three-minute Thesis (3MT) competition later this year after winning the University's finals of the competition.
Over the past three years VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has been working with Finnish-based Exote Ltd to develop a new hard metal and the necessary manufacturing process. This material can be used to replace tungsten carbide (WC), the hard metal widely used in industry today and whose global availability is becoming critical.
The July 2013 issue of Nanotech Insights, a quarterly newsletter dedicated to the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, is now available from CKMNT. This issue of the newsletter is again packed with information and articles on 52 pages.
Ein internationales Forscherteam hat erstmals ein Quantenbit hergestellt und gesteuert, das aus drei sogenannten Quantenpunkten besteht. Der Versuch belegt, dass sich solche Triplett-Quantenbits einfacher kontrollieren lassen als Quantenbits aus einem einzelnen oder zwei Quantenpunkten.
By mimicking microscopic structures in the wings of a butterfly, an international research team has developed a device smaller than the width of a human hair that could make optical communication faster and more secure.
