An opinion study about the perceived risks associated with nanotechnology conducted with a diverse panel of South Carolinians to explore public reaction to, and understanding of, nanotechnology shows relatively low levels of concern about the exceedingly miniature materials.
Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have added another important component towards understanding the material graphene; a material that is currently receiving a lot of attention: They have determined the lifetime of electrons in graphene in lower energy ranges.
Researchers at Chalmers have demonstrated that two stacked chips can be vertically interconnected with carbon nanotube vias through the chips. This new method improves possibilities for 3D integration of circuits, one of the most promising approaches for miniaturization and performance promotion of electronics.
MULT-EU-SIM aims to gather the simulation research community in Europe to establish a joint vision of multiscale modelling and simulation. This will enable to prepare Europe to play a leading role in the opening era of computational sciences where multiscale simulation will profoundly change the scientific and technological practices.
Die Forschungsgruppe von Prof. Markus Affolter am Biozentrum der Uni Basel hat erstmals eine Methode entwickelt, mit der sich Nanobodies zur gezielten Beeinflussung und Steuerung von Proteinfunktionen im Koerper einsetzen lassen.
In the newly proposed scheme, the crystal generating the entangled photons is placed between two mirrors. Interference effects caused by the photons bouncing back and forth between the mirrors ensure that the photons are produced with a very narrow distribution of wavelengths, which is an important requirement for quantum computers.
A multi-purpose optical chip which generates, manipulates and measures entanglement and mixture - two quantum phenomena which are essential driving forces for tomorrow's quantum computers - has been developed by researchers from the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics. This work represents an important step forward in the race to develop a quantum computer.
