Samsung Electronics today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with IMEC to lay down their intent to collaborate on technologies for green radios. The research collaboration topics will include cognitive reconfigurable radio baseband and millimeter-wave wireless communications technologies.
They are masters at working with light: the scientists at the newly founded QUEST Institute at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Braunschweig. And they want to work on some of the most exciting questions relating to physics today: on unimaginably precise methods of measurement for observing the Earth, on the pressing question of the fundamentals of physics, of whether the fundamental constants are really constant, and on the development of the best atomic clock in the world made of a single aluminium atom.
Researchers at UC Santa Barbara have recently demonstrated a breakthrough in the quantum control of photons, the energy quanta of light. This is a significant result in quantum computation, and could eventually have implications in banking, drug design, and other applications.
Das geplante NanoEnergieTechnikZentrum an der Universitaet Duisburg-Essen (UDE) ist in der diesjaehrigen Begutachtungsrunde des Wissenschaftsrats zur Foerderung empfohlen worden. Wenn sich die gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonferenz diesem Votum anschliesst, werden rund 43,3 Millionen Euro an die Universitaet Duisburg-Essen fliessen.
During their experiments the Empa scientists observed that the excited molecules began to hop about and move around, rotating about their own axes. They also underwent very rapid 'inversion', that is, flipping over into their mirror image shape.
Substantial advances for applications of nanocrystals in the fields requiring a continuous output of photons and high quantum efficiency may soon be realized due to discovery of non-blinking semiconductor nanocrystals.
NTSI and CTSI today announced today that the recently held TechConnect World trio of conferences, which included Clean Technology '09, Nanotech '09, and the TechConnect Summit events, drew a record number of attendees, speakers, and vendors to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
