Szén nanocsövek másképp (in Hungarian)

Néha egy-egy új ötlet egyszerűségében is gyönyörű. Ilyen az a technológia is, amellyel finn Jyväskylä Egyetem és a Harvard kutatói álltak elő a szén nanocsövek gyártására. A számítógépes szimulációval bemutatott metódus szerint egyszerűen addig csavarnak hosszanti tengelye körül egy grafén nanoszalagot, amíg az csővé nem áll…

NT-MDT webinar on TERS – 6th of March

T-MDT is happy to invite you to the webinar  “Tip Enhanced Raman Scattering. Approaching 10 nm spatial resolution in Raman imaging” by Dr. Pavel Dorozhkin.



Tip Enhanced Raman Scattering (TERS) is the technique utilizing a special AFM probe (nano-antenna) to localize light at the nanometer scale area near the probe apex. When scanning the sample with respect to the probe, the obtained optical (Raman or fluorescence) maps have lateral resolution which is not limited by the light…

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
