Diamond imperfections pave the way to technology gold

From supersensitive detections of magnetic fields to quantum information processing, the key to a number of highly promising advanced technologies may lie in one of the most common defects in diamonds. Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have taken an important step towards unlocking this key with the first ever detailed look at critical ultrafast processes in these diamond defects.

Wie von Geisterhand: Programmierte Nanopartikel organisieren sich zu hochkomplexen Nanostrukturen

Zellen von Pflanzen und Tieren sind ein prominentes Beispiel dafür, wie die Natur - ausgehend von molekularen Strukturen des Erbguts - in einer zielgerichteten, vorprogrammierten Weise immer größere Einheiten aufbaut. Die Nanotechnologie versucht dieses Bottom-up-Prinzip zu kopieren, indem sie die Fähigkeit von Nanopartikeln zur selbständigen Strukturbildung nutzt.
