For the very first time, a team of researchers in Germany has introduced quantum dots in fully epitaxial nitride laser structures without the need for hybrid systems - effectively eliminating the cumbersome method of combining different materials from epitaxy and evaporation.
Aris Melissaratos, senior advisor to the president for enterprise development at Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer, will speak at the summer's first Professional Development Seminar hosted by the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) on June 16 at 11 a.m. in Maryland Hall 110.
Molecules in quantum states are very fragile. Scientists have devised a way to separate the molecules into their component parts so that the processor's results can be read from the more easily controllable individual atoms. By using lasers, they were able to break down the molecules without compromising the data encoded in them.
The world's smallest chess board - about the diameter of four human hairs - and a pea-sized microbarbershop were winners in this year's design contest for, respectively, novel and educational microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), held at Sandia National Laboratories in mid May.
Although they could revolutionize a wide range of high-tech products such as computer displays or solar cells, organic materials do not have the same ordered chemical composition as inorganic materials, preventing scientists from using them to their full potential. But newly published research shows how to solve this decades-old conundrum.
A scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has created visible-light catalysis, using silver chloride nanowires decorated with gold nanoparticles, that may decompose organic molecules in polluted water.
Das gesamte Infrarot- und Terahertz-Spektrum einer Probe schnell und mit einer Aufloesung im Bereich von Nanometern vermessen - das soll ein neues Instrument, das Forscher unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr. Martina Havenith-Newen an der Synchrotonstrahlungsquelle (ANKA) am Karlsruher Institut of Technology (KIT) aufbauen.
Synthetic biology is an extension of the spirit of genetic engineering that focuses on the development of biological systems with new, defined characteristics, assembled according to the principles of engineering.
The international Nanoscience student Conference - INASCON will take place from 20th August through 22nd August 2010 at Baarlo, Netherlands. The conference has been successfully held in Denmark and Switzerland for three consecutive years. The theme of the conference is: 'Nanogeneration, bringing a dream into reality'.
