DNAElectric Signal Detection from Single Molecules for Molecular Electronics Revolution

The barrier to molecular electronics was the previous inability to detect the tiny electric signals from single molecules. Roswell Biotechnologies overcame that problem and integrated the solution with CMOS. This enables an interface between molecules for sensors and DNA and …

nanoscalePerfect Waveforms for Optical Tweezers to Move Atoms, Molecules and Living Cells

Researchers have calculated perfect optical tweezers for manipulating atoms, molecules or even living cells. A special calculation method was developed to determine the perfect waveform to manipulate small particles in the presence of a disordered environment. This makes it possible …

computersAbout 2020 for Samsung 3 Nanometer MBCFET Chip on Roadmap

Samsung’s 3nm Gate-All-Around (GAA) process, 3GAE, development is on track. The Process Design Kit (PDK) version 0.1 for 3GAE was released in April to help customers get an early start on the design work and enable improved design competitiveness along …

materialsWafer Scale Hexagonal Boron Nitride Films Have Been Created

Dongguk University and other Korean researchers have made wafer scale hexagonal boron nitride films with a nearly perfect single-crystalline structure. The film self-assembles on top of liquid gold. Hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) is also called white graphite. They can be …

carbon nanotubesFabrication of Ultrastrong 700 Gigapascal Fused Double-walled Carbon Nanotubes

The Clean Energy Research Foundation has discovered a method of manufacturing the worlds strongest and toughest materials. Fused double-walled carbon nanotube (DWNT) fibers were made with a strength of a 700 GPa Young’s modulus. This strength was seen in prior …

3d3D Atomic Quantum Chips and Advance to Eventual Large Scale Quantum Tech

Australia’s New South Wales scientists have adapted single atom technology to build 3D silicon quantum chips – with precise interlayer alignment and highly accurate measurement of spin states. The 3D architecture is considered a major step in the development of …

nanoscaleAtom thin magnetic memory

Researchers report that they used stacks of ultrathin materials to exert unprecedented control over the flow of electrons based on the direction of their spins — where the electron “spins” are analogous to tiny, subatomic magnets. The materials that they …
