PhD position – Towards Polycrystalline GaN/Algan devices in silicon technology - University of Twente, Netherlands

Job description:

Monocrystalline GaN is currently a hot topic as a semiconductor material for high-performance transistors. In this project we want to investigate the properties of the related polycrystalline GaN and AlGaN materials for applications in semiconductor devices. Polycrystalline materials are easier and cheaper to make, but very little has so far been reported about this material in the literature. The group of Semiconductor Components is now recruiting for a PhD…

Nanorelief improves the biocompatibility of titanium surface

Scientists from the Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI), Russia, have proposed a new method for surface modification of titanium, giving it the unique optical and mechanical properties, as well as improving the biocompatibility of the sample. Implants made ​​of nanocrystalline titanium with the new biocompatible coating are currently in preclinical testing. Proposed modifications of the method of producing the titanium coating consists of irradiating the surface of the nanocrystalline titanium…

Graphene enables long lasting lithium-air batteries that can enable electric cars with almost 1,000 kilometers range

Researchers from Korea's KAIST institute developed a lithium-air rechargeable battery using a nano fiber graphene composite catalyst. This battery has five times greater storage compared to current lithium-ion batteries, and is the highest performing lithium-air batter ever developed with a good lifespan to boot. Such batteries may enable electric vehicle to travel almost a 1,000 kilometers on a single charge:…

Ph.D. (4 years) position in theory of molecule-surface reaction dynamics at Leiden University

A Ph.D. (4 years) position is available starting January 1st 2014, in the theoretical chemistry group of Leiden University (NL).

The research will focus on demonstrating the accurate calculation of the interaction of a molecule with a metal surface, for a few selected systems containing Pt. For a few systems, accurate reaction barrier heights are now available from comparisons of experiments with dynamics calculations using potential surfaces based on DFT using semi-empirical density…

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
