Self Assembling Chips
In nature a phenomenon called "self assembly" is a delicate process that forms seashells, creates the enamel on teeth and transforms water into complex snowflakes. IBM Research has, for the first time ever, ...
Nano World: Invisibility through nano
Invisibility cloaks that bend light might develop using nanotechnology, experts tell UPI's Nano World.
IBM Brings Single-Atom Data Storage, Molecular Computers Closer to Reality
IBM today announced two major scientific achievements in the field of nanotechnology that could one day lead to new kinds of devices and structures built from a few atoms or molecules.
Nanoscale computer memory retrieves data 1,000 times faster
Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania have developed nanowires capable of storing computer data for 100,000 years and retrieving that data a thousand times faster than existing portable memory devices such as Flash ...
Physicists Store Images in Vapor
'Nano-Manhattan' 3D solar cells boost efficiency (Update)
Unique three-dimensional solar cells that capture nearly all of the light that strikes them could boost the efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) systems while reducing their size, weight and mechanical complexity.
Make Way for the Real Nanopod: Researchers Create First Fully Functional Nanotube Radio

Physicists show electrons can travel over 100 times faster in graphene than in silicon
University of Maryland physicists have shown that in graphene the intrinsic limit to the mobility, a measure of how well a material conducts electricity, is higher than any other known material at room temperature. ...
Flexible nanoantenna arrays capture abundant solar energy
Researchers have devised an inexpensive way to produce plastic sheets containing billions of nanoantennas that collect heat energy generated by the sun and other sources. The technology, developed at the U.S. Department of ...
New Digital 'Electronics' Concept May Continue Moore's Law
New paradigm for solar cell construction demonstrated
(Phys.org) —For solar panels, wringing every drop of energy from as many photons as possible is imperative. This goal has sent chemistry, materials science and electronic engineering researchers on a quest ...
