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,…

Russian scientists to produce cuprous oxide nanoparticles directly from electrodes

A group of researchers at Dagestan State University has managed to synthesise cuprite nanoparticles using an electrochemical method. They report their discovery in an article currently in print, issue #7–8 of the Russian Nanotechnologies.

Cuprous oxide – Cu2O, or cuprite — is a rather promising material for…

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
