Scientists First To Measure Force Required To Move Individual Atoms
IBM scientists, in collaboration with the University of Regensburg in Germany, are the first ever to measure the force it takes to move individual atoms on a surface. This fundamental measurement provides ...
The Library of Congress in your wrist watch?
Every advance in memory storage devices presents a new marvel of just how much memory can be squeezed into very small spaces. Considering the potential of nanolasers being developed in Sakhrat Khizroev’s lab at the University ...
'Nano-Piezotronics' -- New Class of Electronic Components
Researchers have taken advantage of the unique coupled semiconducting and piezoelectric properties of zinc oxide nanowires to create a new class of electronic components and devices that could provide the foundation ...
Nano World: Fast flow through nanotube membranes (Update)
Surprisingly, gas and water flow far more rapidly through membranes that use carbon nanotubes as pores than through conventional membranes with pores 10 times or so wider, experts tell UPI's Nano World.
Physicists create carbon magnetism by removing atoms from graphite
HP Labs find memristors can compute (w/ Video)
In world's first, atomic force microscope sees chemical bonds in individual molecules (w/ video)
(Phys.org)—IBM scientists have been able to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules for the first time using a technique known as noncontact atomic force microscopy (AFM).
Electron spin and orbits in carbon nanotubes are coupled
Researchers hoping to use carbon nanotubes for quantum computing -- in which the spin of a single electron would represent a bit of data -- may have to change their approaches, according to new Cornell research.
Physicists set new records for silicon quantum computing
Two research teams working in the same laboratories at UNSW Australia have found distinct solutions to a critical challenge that has held back the realisation of super powerful quantum computers.
Nanodevices could use quantized current to operate future electronics
Flow of tiny bubbles mimics computer circuitry
In work that could dramatically boost the capabilities of "lab on a chip" devices, MIT researchers have created a way to use tiny bubbles to mimic the capabilities of a computer.
