Scientists Develop Nanolamp with Integrated Transistor Control and Lightning-Fast Switch

Scientists Develop Nanolamp with Integrated Transistor Control and Lightning-Fast Switch

A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and the Max Planck EPFL Center have collaborated to develop a nanolamp with integrated transistor control. The nanolamp is a light source that uses a single molecule to convert an electrical voltage pulse into a pulse of light. [More]

Researchers Create Light-Sensitive Film Using Semiconductor Nanorods and Carbon Nanotubes

The loss of eyesight, often caused by retinal degeneration, is a life-altering health issue for many people, especially as they age. But a new development toward a prosthetic retina could help counter conditions that result from problems with this crucial part of the eye. Scientists published their research on a new device, which they tested on tissue from laboratory animals, in the ACS journal Nano Letters. [More]
Researchers Come Up with New Approach to Atomic Timekeeping

Researchers Come Up with New Approach to Atomic Timekeeping

What time is it? The answer, no matter what your initial reference may be — a wristwatch, a smartphone, or an alarm clock — will always trace back to the atomic clock. [More]
X-Ray Light Source PETRA III Helps Investigate Photosynthesis Subsystem in Near-Natural State

X-Ray Light Source PETRA III Helps Investigate Photosynthesis Subsystem in Near-Natural State

Photosynthesis is one of the most important processes in nature. The complex method by which all green plants harvest sunlight and thereby produce the oxygen in our air is still not fully understood. Researchers have used DESY's X-ray light source PETRA III to investigate a photosynthesis subsystem in a near-natural state. [More]
Nanyang Technological University and University of Southampton Launch The Photonics Institute

Nanyang Technological University and University of Southampton Launch The Photonics Institute

The next generation of ultra-fast Internet or ground-breaking electronic circuits, powered by light instead of electricity, could very well be built on research done at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in conjunction with the University of Southampton. [More]
Gold Nanoparticle Chains Facilitate Highly Confined Light Propagation

Gold Nanoparticle Chains Facilitate Highly Confined Light Propagation

Researchers from Singapore and Bristol in association with the Centre d'Elaboration de Matériaux et d'Etudes Structurales (CEMES, CNRS) have demonstrated the confinement of light energy to nano scale level by aligning crystalline gold nanoparticles and fusing them into long chains. The research was published in the Nature Materials website. [More]
