JUST RELEASED: Chirality in Biological Nanospaces: Reactions in Active Sites Chirality in Biological Nanospaces: Reactions in Active Sties describes how today’s combination of crystallographic studies with electronic structure-based computational analysis may lead to new drugs that can better target biological active sites and even design custom-made novel biocytes with improved efficiency. The author focuses on the molecular and nanoscale. Topics include: molecular chirality influences on the structure of active site and the network of interactions that drive reactions with improved speed, accuracy, and efficiency; interplay of electrostatic, hydrophobic, and van der Waals interactions; and active site residue interactions.

FEATURED INSTITUTION: Columbia Leads Project To Build Optical Nanostructures for Self-Focusing Light An international team led by Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science has built optical nanostructures that can control light dispersion and engineer the index of refraction. This control of light propagation via photonic chips could prove a major breakthrough for telecommunications. It also demonstrates it is possible for light (or any electromagnetic waves) to propagate from Point A to Point B without accumulating any phase,

SUMMER BEST-SELLER: Introduction to Spintronics
SUMMER BEST-SELLER: Introduction to Spintronics Introduction to Spintronics is now a CRC Press best-seller! The book is an accessible, organized, and progressive presentation of the quantum mechanical concept of spin. The authors are Supriyo Bandyopadhyay of Virginia Commonwealth University and Marc Cahay of the University of Cincinnati. Bandyopadhyay and Cahey build a foundation of principles and equations underlying the physics, transport, and dynamics of spin in solid state systems. They also explain the use of spin for encoding qubits in quantum logic processors and clarify how spin-orbit interaction forms the basis for transistors, magnetic fields and devices.

Researchers Succeed in Using Doping To Shift Nanocrystals for Electronics A team of researchers from Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University has successfully used doping to change the electronic properties of semiconductor nanocrystals. The work would allow nanocrystals to be used as conductors in microelectronics and electro-optics. The work was done by Prof. Eran Rabani of Tel Aviv University's School of Chemistry in collaboration with Pros. Uri Banin and Prof. Oded Millo from Hebrew University.
NanoSensors Monitor Interactions Between Single-Cells in Real-Time
NanoSensors Monitor Interactions Between Single-Cells in Real-Time Nano researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) have developed a platform technology for cell-signaling sensors that can monitor interactions between single cells -- and in real-time. Understanding more about cell signaling events could offer many implications for treatments of disease
DOE Researchers Record First Nanocrystal Transformations
DOE Researchers Record First Nanocrystal Transformations Using the TEAM 0.5 microscope, one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, Berkeley Lab researchers have made the first direct observation of structural transformations within a single nanocrystal of copper sulfide. The results break new ground for the design of novel materials that could be used for next-generation batteries, solar and energy storage devices.
Nanobodies from Camels Show Promise in Safely Killing Cancer Cells
Nanobodies produced by camels are showing to be highly effective in and safe for fighting certain types of cancers. Scientists at the University of Copenhagen are using them to develop therapies to fight breast and colon cancers.

As a former Columbia student, I consider it to be my intellectual home. I return again and again to its hallowed halls... I'm pleased to see this, Andras.

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
