New Patent for Safer Nanotechnology - aka no more lightsabers in nanofibre production

High-voltage nanofibre production, using very high voltages of up to 120,000 volts, is a principle that has been known for a long time. Naturally, there is inherently a high risk of injury if equipment operators handle the high voltage electrodes or created nano-material before the residual surface charge has been safely discharged. Until now, hand-operated external grounded…

20 chipmakers from Japan and US to co-develop MRAM in hopes to replace DRAM within 3 years

According to Nikkei, over 20 Japanese and US companies (including TEL, Hitachi, Rensas and Micron) have teamed up to develop MRAM technologies, in particular a new mass production method. They plan to start development in February 2014, and continue to seek more companies from the US and Europe to join. The aim is to complete materials and processes development by 2017 and start mass production by 2018.

This is an exciting development. Hopefully the companies will actually launch…

A Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Fracture in Nanocrystalline Copper

Authors: Lin Qing Pei, Cheng Lu, Kiet Tieu, Hong Tao Zhu, Xing Zhao, Kui Yu Cheng, Liang Zhang


Abstract: A large-scale molecular dynamics simulation was used to investigate the propagation of cracks in three dimensional samples of nanocrystalline copper, with average grain sizes ranging from 5.34 to 14.8 nm and temperatures ranging from 1K to 500 K. It was shown that intragranular fracture can proceed inside the grain at low temperature, and plastic deformation around the tip…

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
