PhD Position – Transport properties of doped and undoped CNT yarn - CEA Tech, France

Metal substitution in electrical wires by materials with high conductivity like carbon nanotubes (CNT) is interesting for short term applications in avionic and space thanks to the huge benefit of such wiring in term of mass. Indeed such wires will significantly improve the energy consumption of planes for example. Individual performances of CNTs can be better than the copper one. However, the electrical conductivity of CNT wires still remains lower than the metal ones. The objective…

Post-doctoral Position – Simulation and Fabrication of Reconfigurable Silicon Nanowire Transistor - CEA Tech, France

We propose to develop a new device defined as a reconfigurable silicon nanowire transistor. This novel concept is based on a universal transistor that can be reversely configured as p-FET or n-FET by changing the polarity of source and drain Schottky junctions. The activity of the postdoc will be focused both on the simulation and the fabrication of reconfigurable MOSFET transistor. A preliminary theoretical work will be performed to deeply understand the working principle of the…

A graféntől a LED-lámpákig – merre tart a tudomány? (in Hungarian)

Bár nap mint nap használjuk a különböző technológiai eszközöket az okos telefonoktól elkezdve a tableteken át a LED világításig, arról már kevesebbet tudunk, hogy ezek megalkotásának hátterében milyen kutatói munka áll. A grafénben, a világító diódákban és a nanoarchitektúrákban rejlő lehetőségekről Bársony Istvánt, a mikro-és nanotechnológia szakértőjét kérdeztük a Rádió Orienten. tovább a cikkre

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
