Guitar virtuosos have to master all kinds of playing techniques. But how can the intricate process of playing the instrument be captured digitally? A special thin film on the tailpiece has the answer. Functioning as a sensor, it converts the tension on the string into digital control signals.
Like the years before, IVAM Microtechnology Network is organizing the Japanese-German Micro / Nano Business Forum within the "Micromachine/MEMS" in Tokyo, one of the most important exhibitions in the field of micro and nanotechnology in Japan.
Nanotechnologien und Neue Materialien bieten grosses Potenzial fuer den Verpackungssektor. Dies zeigte der Branchendialog Nanopackaging in Duesseldorf. Die Praesentationen der Veranstaltung sind jetzt online verfuegbar.
A dragonfly as small as a dust mote, its four tiny wings beating like it had momentarily alit on a lily pad, and a highly sensitive microvalve were the big winners in this year's student design contest for extraordinarily tiny devices at Sandia National Laboratories.
Viruses that attack plants, insects, mammals and bacteria are proving effective platforms for delivering medicines and imaging chemicals to specific cells in the body, as building blocks for tiny battery electrodes and computer data storage devices, and other nanotechnologies.
For the first time, scientists at IBM Research have demonstrated that a relatively new memory technology, known as phase-change memory (PCM), can reliably store multiple data bits per cell over extended periods of time.
A team of engineers and scientists at the University of British Columbia has developed a device that can be implanted behind the eye for controlled and on-demand release of drugs to treat retinal damage caused by diabetes.
The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) and the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) are proud to co-sponsor an informational seminar "Leveraging Supercomputing in Nano/NanoBio Research" on Wednesday July 20, 2011.
Researchers have observed that the light emitted by a single atom may exhibit much richer dynamics. Strongly interacting with light inside a cavity, the atom modifies the wave-like properties of the light field, reducing its amplitude or phase fluctuations below the level allowed for classical electromagnetic radiation. This is the very first observation of "squeezed" light produced by a single atom.
