Researchers add another tool to their directed assembly toolkit

An interdisciplinary team of University of Pennsylvania researchers has already developed a technique for controlling liquid crystals by means of physical templates and elastic energy, rather than the electromagnetic fields that manipulate them in televisions and computer monitors. They envision using this technique to direct the assembly of other materials, such as nanoparticles.

Developing a nanotechnology 'Swiss Army knife'

To make the best use of nanotechnology, researchers and businesses need the most advanced and effective tools. FIBLYS and its direct follow-on project, UnivSEM, achieved a major breakthrough in precisely this area, creating a unique new machine which is vividly summed up by one of the project leaders as a 'Swiss Army knife' of nanotechnology tools.

Ein Fenster ins Innere von Graphen

Physikern der Uni Jena um Prof. Szameit und Prof. Dr. Stefan Nolte ist es jetzt mit einem internationalen Team gelungen, das Verhalten von Elektronen in Graphen umfassend zu charakterisieren. Die Forscher stellen experimentelle Daten vor, anhand derer sich die elektronischen Eigenschaften insbesondere in den Randstrukturen des Graphen-Kristalls exakt simulieren lassen.
