Molecular gates spin photons from chemicals
News & Analysis  
6/27/2005   Post a comment
The human eye employs millions of nanoscale photoreceptors that output chemical signals when they are stimulated by photons. By reversing that process, a team of researchers in Northern Ireland and Japan has engineered a tiny molecular transistor that emits photons when supplied with the right chemicals.

U.S. supercomputer makers are expected to dominate this year's list of the world's fastest supercomputers.
Silica, dye yield new kind of quantum dot
News & Analysis  
6/13/2005   Post a comment
An alternative to quantum dots-encapsulating organic dyes in a silica matrix-has been developed by researchers at Cornell University. The process, they said, could cut the cost of making optical computing devices, and render them chemically inert as well.

Presenters at the First International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation last week identified the key issues facing nanotechnology.
'Vision chips' mimic eye, brain functions
Design How-To  
6/6/2005   Post a comment
As the long development of charge-coupled device (CCD) and CMOS active-pixel sensor technology begins to pay off in the form of affordable all-electronic still and video cameras, a second wave of solid-state imaging chips with very different capabilities is emerging from research labs around the world.
Organic molecule switches like a transistor
News & Analysis
