Spingate advances new pS-MRAM technology, working on a 4Gbit chip design

Spingate is a US company working on magnetic memory (MRAM) designs and IP. The company says they are advancing their new pS-MRAM technology (based on spin induced switching and perpendicular magnetic materials). According to Spingate this new technology will be competitive in performance and price/bit with all existing memory technologies including DRAM and NAND flash. The company is already working on a 4Gbit chip design.…

PhD position in single-molecule chemical physics

We seek to recruit a PhD student in the field of scanning probe control of single molecules supervised by Dr Peter A. Sloan of the Nanoscience group and the Centre for Graphene Science at the University of Bath.

The ability of the scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to control matter at the atomic level has led to the building of atomic scale structures from the bottom by 'simply' pushing the atoms or molecules across a surface. The STM can also manipulate molecules through… Continue

Example Problems

There are some common calculations done by the beginning student of nanoscience and I thought it would be good to go over some of these calculations in a video and post it to Youtube.  This is mostly to help my students but others may find it useful.  I was inspired by Salman Khan over at Khan Academy: .  I used three tools to create these videos.  The first is SmoothDraw which is used to draw the programs: …

Move over Graphene, there's a new material in town: Silicene

Phyisicists created atom-thin sheets of silicon - and named the new material Silicene. The idea to create such sheets from Silicon emerged in 2007 - even though silicon doesn't naturally form the required atomic bonds. Silicene has a similar pattern to Graphene and possibly has the same electronic properties and might have advantages of Graphene because silicon is more integrateable into today's electronic devices.…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
