Nanoscale spin waves can replace microwaves (w/videos)

A group of scientists from the University of Gothenburg and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden, have become the first group in the world to demonstrate that theories about nanoscale spin waves agree with observations. This opens the way to replacing microwave technology in many applications, such as mobile phones and wireless networks, by components that are much smaller, cheaper, and that require less resources.

Spot an in der Nanowelt: Struktur kleinster Kristalle wird sichtbar gemacht

An der Johannes Gutenberg-Universitaet Mainz wurde eine grundlegende Methode entwickelt, um Strukturen auf der Nanoebene sichtbar zu machen. Damit ist die Anordnung von Atomen und Molekuelen in unterschiedlichen Feststoffen von Zement bis hin zu Pharmaka genau festzustellen. Das noch junge Verfahren aus der Elektronenmikroskopie kann die Struktur winzigster Kristalle aufloesen.
