atomically precise manufacturingQuantum Technology NEEDS Atomically Precise Manufacturing

Zyvex Labs has the goal of Atomically Precise Manufacturing (APM). They are researching and developing tools for creating quantum computers, analog quantum simulation devices and other transformational systems that require atomic precision. Developed as part of this effort, ZyVector™ turns …

batteriesGraphene Still Difficult to Use and Path to Major Commercialization is Uncertain

Graphene has a lot of potential because it can be the strongest material and has many other exceptional characteristics. There has been a lot of research around the material since 2004, when Professor Sir Andre Geim and Professor Sir Kostya …

DNAFirst Billion-atom Biomolecular Simulation

Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory have created the largest simulation to date of an entire gene of DNA, a feat that required one billion atoms to model and will help researchers to better understand and develop cures for diseases …

artificial intelligenceAdvance to Controlling one to a Few Hundred Atoms at Microsecond Timescales Using AI Control of Electron Beams

The work should lead to control one to a few hundred atoms at microsecond timescales using AI control of electron beams. The computational/analytical framework developed in this work are general and can further help develop techniques for controlling single-atom dynamics …

futureUltrafast Cluster Electronics

Japanese researchers are creating a new field of science called cluster molecular electronics.

carbon nanotubesSuperstrong materials for electric spaceplanes instead of space elevators

China has carbon nanotube bundles in the lab that are 20 times stronger than kevlar. They are trying to scale them up for mass production. If they succeed in mass producing tons of this material then what has been impossible …

artificial intelligenceAI Automated Atomic rewritable writing is a turning point for molecular nanotechnology

Robert Wilkow has used machine learning techniques to control scanning tunneling microscopes (STM). they have shown a full alphabet of 8-bit memory and 192 bits of music. They have substantially improved automated hydrogen lithography (HL) on silicon, and transformed state-of-the-art …

molecular nanotechnologyElectron-Beam Manipulation of individual atoms

The scanning tunneling microscope has been able to move atoms over surfaces since the late 1980s. Now, the scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) is able to reliably focus an electron beam with sub-atomic precision, allowing scientists to directly see each …
