University of Oregon researchers trying to flip the spin of electrons with laser bursts lasting picoseconds instead found a way to manipulate and control the spin - knowledge that may prove useful in a variety of new materials and technologies.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), a university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today joined with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to announce funding of $2M in grants for nanoelectronics research at six major NSF centers across seven U.S. universities.
The research scientists of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will in future be working in close cooperation with the scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. The new Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems is located in the immediate vicinity of the MIT campus.
Peptide arrays are powerful tools for developing new medical substances as well as for diagnosis and therapy techniques. A new production method based on laser printing will enable the potential of peptide arrays to be effectively utilized for the first time.
National Science Foundation CAREER Awards support emerging research in harvesting neural stem cells, analyzing DNA, developing sustainable power, creating better electronics and building smarter computers.
Researchers at Yale and the Institute of Quantum Electronics at ETH Zurich have formulated a theory that, allows scientists to better understand and predict the properties of both conventional and non-conventional lasers.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a substance far stronger and harder than conventional iron, and which retains these properties under extremely high temperatures - opening the door to a wide variety of potential applications, such as engine components that are exposed to high stress and high temperatures
Scientific ties between Russia and the European Union look set to become much tighter in the years to come, according to a joint statement of the EU-Russia Permanent Partnership Council and Research, which met for the first time on May 26. On the cards are a set of coordinated calls for co-funded projects in the area of health, and nanotechnologies and new materials.
