Researchers from the Quantum Photonics Group at DTU Fotonik in collaboration with the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen surprise the scientific world with the discovery that light emission from solid-state photon emitters, the so-called quantum dots, is fundamentally different than hitherto believed.
In der Schweiz hat das Staatssekretariat fuer Wirtschaft SECO einen Leitfaden erarbeitet fuer das Erstellen von Sicherheitsdatenblaettern fuer Chemikalien, welche aus Nanomaterialien bestehen oder solche enthalten.
A research team in Japan succeeded in controlling the few-particle quantum state of a semiconductor quantum dot, and changing its correlation energies. This research achievement will make it possible to develop semiconductor non-linear devices which enable stable drive with low power consumption.
The Institute of Microelectronics (IME), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), and GLOBALFOUNDRIES are joining hands to develop MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) Capacitive Sensor Platform Technology for power-efficient and highly sensitive motion sensing applications that are relevant to consumer electronics, automotive and aerospace industries.
The aim of this initiative which has been in the works since 2009 is to encourage more use of high-technology in Thailand's nanomanufacturing. This type of business will be categorized as a top priority business which brings greater benefits to the country and boost Thailand's positioning as an attractive investment destination.
Researchers at Fractal Antenna Systems have written a new chapter in the science of making things disappears. Their wideband microwave invisibility cloak, first revealed in March 2009, now makes its debut for everyone to see in a new video.
For years, scientists have been searching for an example of Moebius symmetry in natural materials without any success. Now a team of scientists has discovered Moebius symmetry in metamaterials - materials engineered from artificial 'atoms' and 'molecules' with electromagnetic properties that arise from their structure rather than their chemical composition.
Plastics-based materials have been in use for decades. But manufacturers are facing a serious hurdle in their quest for new developments: Substantial influences of the microscopic material structure on mechanical material properties cannot be observed directly. The synthetic polymer molecules are simply too small for microscopic observation in mechanical experiments. A team of physicists has now developed a method that allows just these kinds of measurements.
