Welcome our new partner: Atomic Scale Design Network(ASDN) - Educational Webportal


Like every living being or institution ASDN has its history which will be written on this page with life going on (at atomic and nano scale!).

ASDN history starts in the previous millennium. At the E-MRS (European material Research Society) meeting in Strasbourg in 1999, Anatoli Korkin (he was at Motorola at that prehistoric time) had presented the idea of a web site and mailing list (the term "web portal" was not yet popular at that time) in fundamentals of materials design for microelectronics to Dr. Jim Greer from Tyndall Institute (at that time National Microelectronics Research Center ). However, neither Anatoli nor Jim had expertise in web design. Luckily, Anatoli had a good friend, who is a guru in programming and the Internet, Dr. Jan Labanowski. Jan has his own web portal , Computational Chemistry List (CCL), and he also has a big heart for his friends, desperate to enlist his skills, knowledge and wisdom. Jan used the CLL scripts as a prototype to design the framework of ASDN, which he, Anatoli and Jim (and his students) populated by initial information. However, the life of ASDN at the Internet (and the major traffic to the domain) came not from its mailing list or data bases (links) but from the Nano and Giga Forum, series of the Nano & Giga Challenges conferences with the initial focus in microelectronics (NGCM2002 and NGCM2004) which has been expended further toward photonics (NGC2007 ) and renewable energy (NGC2009).

The new page in ASDN history has started in the summer 2007 when the leading Russian nanotechnology tool maker, NT-MDT has signed an agreement with Nano & Giga Solutions for the development of , ASDN.NET into an educational web portal for atomic structure and fundamentals of nanotechnology. From here we start a new story and you are welcome to take part in making history.

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
