Already a Fellow of the Royal Society, Prof Geim has now been given a Royal Society Research Professorship to support his ground-breaking research into a super-thin two dimensional material called graphene.
The main goal of this research line at the Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya is the development of experimental set ups based on Atomic Force Microscopy and of adequate theoretical frameworks to measure and understand the electrical properties of biological samples (e.g. biomembranes and single biomolecules) at the nanoscale.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today it reached another milestone in the Carbon Electronics for RF Applications, or CERA program, which seeks to exploit the unique physical characteristics of graphene carbon to create electronic components that will enable unprecedented capabilities in high-bandwidth communications, imaging and radar systems.
Researchers have created a new type of invisibility cloak that is simpler than previous designs and works for all colors of the visible spectrum, making it possible to cloak larger objects than before and possibly leading to practical applications in 'transformation optics'.
By combining the art of origami with nanotechnology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute researchers have folded sheets of DNA into multilayered objects with dimensions thousands of times smaller than the thickness of a human hair.
