Forscher des Paul-Drude-Instituts fuer Festkoerperelektronik entwickeln gemeinsam mit der Industrie und anderen Forschungsinstituten im Rahmen eines EU-Projektes weisse Leuchtdioden (LEDs), die auf Nanosaeulen basieren. Dadurch koennte die Produktion von energiesparenden weissen LEDs deutlich billiger werden.
At the fifth DFG-NSF Research Conference approximately 70 high-ranking German and American physics and chemistry researchers discussed important issues of nanotechnology with colleagues from the fields of materials science, materials engineering and life sciences.
Large-area, organic and printed electronics - complementing traditional silicon-based microelectronics - is at the threshold of mass production, promising a host of thin and lightweight, flexible and robust products.
A trio of high school seniors conducting hands-on nanotechnology research through internships at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany have been selected as semifinalists in the 2010 Intel Science Talent Search, the nation's most prestigious pre-college science competition.
Researchers in the Electro-Optics Center (EOC) Materials Division at Penn State have produced 100 mm diameter graphene wafers, a key milestone in the development of graphene for next generation high-power, high-frequency electronic devices.
Rice graduate student Cary Pint has come up with a way to transfer patterns of strongly aligned, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) from a substrate to another surface - any surface - in a matter of minutes.
The QIP (International Workshop on Quantum Information Processing) is a major meeting point for quantum theorists. Renato Renner, an assistant professor of theoretical physics at ETH Zurich and co-organizer of this year's convention, explains why we will be contemplating application programs over the next few days even though we are still a far cry from a universally operational quantum computer.
