Theoretical PhD studies of nanoscale systems - University of Illinois at Chicago

Applications are invited for PhD studies in theoretical physical chemistry

focused on analytical and computational modeling of nanoscale systems with

chemical, physical, and biological origins. Most research projects are

done in close collaborations with top experimental groups. Typical

research projects: 1) molecular dynamics simulations of the self-assembly

of nanoparticles and structural analysis of the formed meta-materials; 2)

modeling of nanomedicines…

New research may revolutionize electronics with likely successor to silicon in computer chips

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), a team of Stanford University engineers has for the first time built a tiny computer with 178 transistors made from carbon nanotubes, a semiconductor material that may replace silicon in computer chips. This change could launch a new generation of electronic devices that are smaller, cheaper, faster and more energy-efficient than those of today. “This is greater than a promise,” said Mihail Roco, senior advisor for Nanotechnology at…

With carbon nanotubes, a path to flexible, low-cost sensors

Researchers at the Technische Universität München (TUM) are showing the way toward low-cost, industrial-scale manufacturing of a new family of electronic devices. A leading example is a gas sensor that could be integrated into food packaging to gauge freshness, or into compact wireless air-quality monitors. New types of solar cells and flexible transistors are also in the works, as well as pressure and temperature sensors that could be built into electronic skin for robotic or bionic…

A first: Stanford engineers build computer using carbon nanotube technology

A team of Stanford engineers has built a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, a semiconductor material that has the potential to launch a new generation of electronic devices that run faster, while using less energy, than those made from silicon chips. This wafer contains tiny computers using carbon nanotubes, a material that could lead to smaller, more energy-efficient processors.   This unprecedented feat culminates years of efforts by scientists around the world to harness this…

Researchers devise means to combine scanning tunneling microscopy and infrared spectroscopy

A team of researchers at the University of California with members also from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Stanford University has succeeded in combining tunneling microscopy and infrared spectroscopy to gain a better understanding of how molecules behave when they stick to a surface. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they used a custom built laser to allow for performing infrared spectroscopy with scanning tunneling…

Tiny antennas let long light waves see in infrared

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign researchers have developed arrays of tiny nano-antennas that can enable sensing of molecules that resonate in the infrared (IR) spectrum. Nanoantennas made of semiconductor can help scientists detect molecules with infrared light. Credit: Daniel Wasserman “The identification of molecules by sensing their unique absorption resonances is very important for environmental monitoring, industrial process control and military applications,” said team…

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
