Millions of people today carry around pocket-sized music players capable of holding thousands of songs, thanks to the discovery 20 years ago of a phenomenon known as the 'giant magnetoresistance effect,' which made it possible to pack more data onto smaller and smaller hard drives. Now scientists are on the trail of another phenomenon, called the 'colossal magnetoresistance effect' which is up to a thousand times more powerful and could trigger another revolution in computing technology.
A survey of the physics of ultracold atoms and molecules, taking into consideration the latest research on ultracold phenomena, such as Bose Einstein condensation and quantum computing. This textbook covers recent experimental results on atom and molecule cooling as well as the theoretical treatment.
Haroche is a specialist in atomic physics and quantum optics. He is one of the founders of cavity quantum electrodynamics, a field which uses conceptually simple experiments to shed light on the fundamentals of quantum theory and develop prototype quantum information processing systems.
The Roadmap as well as numerous new demonstrators will be introduced by the OE-A for the first time at LOPE-C - the Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention - which will take place June 23rd through the 25th, 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany.
Carnegie Mellon University's Katayun Barmak, with the help of Microscopy Lab Supervisor Thomas Nuhfer, is one of the first materials scientists worldwide to successfully map polycrystalline structures on a nanoscale.
By applying cutting-edge techniques in single-molecule manipulation, researchers at Harvard University have uncovered a fundamental feedback mechanism that the body uses to regulate the clotting of blood.
