Spintronics and Staintronics to enable ultra low power ICs that do not require batteries

energy - in fact it could run merely by tapping the ambient energy from the environment.





The energy dissipated can be as low as 0.4 attojoules, or about a billionth of a billionth of a joule. So this design could create an extremely low-power, yet high-density, non-volatile magnetic logic and memory system. The processors would be well suited for implantable medical devices and could run on energy harvested from the patient's body motion. They also could be incorporated into… Continue

Electron microscopic detection of nanoparticles in cells (Karlsruhe)

Nanoparticles are frequently used as additives in food and articles of daily use which necessitates studies of possible adverse effects on biological systems. In this context, the Laboratory for Electron Microscopy at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is recruiting a PhD student for an interdisciplinary project concerned with the detection of nanoparticles in cells. The PhD candidate with a Diplom/Master in physics is expected to use advanced electron microscopic techniques for… Continue

PhD/PostDoc position in Colloidal Simulation at the Chair for Process Systems Engineering at Technische Universitaet Muenchen (Freising)

PhD/PostDoc position in Colloidal Simulation at the Chair for Process Systems Engineering at Technische Universität München



Project



Mechanistic modelling of restructuring behaviour of colloidal aggregates



Colloidal particles are submicron particles which are usually suspended in a continuous phase (liquid or gas). They have unique properties due to their high ration of surface area to volume. The Priority Programme “Colloidal Process Engineering” (SPP 1273)… Continue

Toshiba to use MRAM as cache for HDD and NAND

It seems that Toshiba plans to use MRAM as cache for both NAND and HDDs devices.
Toshiba hasn't given up on the idea of having a full MRAM memory device - replacing HDD/NAND/DRAM altogether, but using it as a cache can be a step towards this goal:

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
