A light-speed computer

Researchers at Moscow State University prepare for a breakthrough in nanophotonics

Researchers have come up to producing ultrahigh-speed optical devices where the information medium will not be the electron (as it is now) but a photon. In the future, this will enable to achieve teracycle computing frequency. That, in turn, will open up possibilities for brand new telecommunication and navigation systems,…

Viruses to help storing solar power

A solar battery operation is based on the light getting on the photosensitive surface characterised with a “redundancy” of electrons, the latter start shifting into the next in-depth layer of the battery made of “electron-poor” materials. The electromotive force occurs which leads to the emergence of electric current. In fact the two layers interact as electrodes of a regular battery.

Search for materials fit to make solar batteries is of great interest for researchers. Materials…

Russian researchers have established a new catalyst. Europe will be implementing it

Researchers at the A.N. Nesmeyanov Institute of Heteroorganic Compounds, Russian Academy of Sciences, are developing catalyst systems, which will be implemented by the biggest European pharmaceutical companies and will probably lead to changes in industrial standards for vitamin and drug production. These systems are supposed to help in increasing pharmacologic composites purity and in decreasing the final output cost. The effort is being…

Bony nanotechnology

When people are born no spare parts are readily available for them. Soft tissue regeneration occurs quite fast but what about bone recovery? It was proved that implants — artificial bone replacements — were in use as long ago as some time BC. A piece of a mandibula of an Inca (6th century BC) was found in modern Honduras, around the De Los Muertos plateau, bearing three dental implants made of sea mussel shells. A female skull belonging to the 1st century BC, with a…

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
