thumbnailHarvey Nathanson, 'father of MEMS,' dies at 83
Nathanson’s achievements include a microscopic device used as a tuner for microelectric radios, which became the first device in the MEMS field. Karen Lightman, executive director of Metro 21 at CMU, met Nathanson about 20 years ago, around the formation of the MEMS industry. “He played a huge role in helping transition this technology from ...

thumbnailUnderstanding color at a nanoscale
Some of the most vibrantly colored creatures in the animal kingdom don't owe their amazing colors to pigment. Instead, they cover themselves with microscopic structures that fine tune the way they reflect light. Now, these animals are inspiring a new generation of nanotechnology. Understanding why these structures occur in nature, and how we ... 2019-12-09 - Nanotechnology
thumbnailStimulated emission detection images single nanocrystals at high speed
Courtesy: ICFO A new technique for imaging single molecules that does not rely on fluorescent emitters could find a host of applications in nanotechnology, photonics and photovoltaics. The technique, which was developed by researchers in Barcelona, works by detecting stimulated emission from single quantum dots at room temperature. Its speed ...

thumbnailHeat energy leaps through empty space, thanks to quantum weirdness
Though this interaction is only significant on very short length scales, it could have profound implications for the design of computer chips and other nanoscale electronic components where heat dissipation is key. It also upends what many of us learned about heat transfer in high school physics. “Heat is usually conducted in a solid through ...

thumbnailDemonstration of ultrafast and energy-efficient all-optical switching with graphene and plasmonic waveguides
NTT and Tokyo Tech developed an all-optical switch operating in the ultrafast regime (less than one picosecond) with low energy consumption by combining an extremely small optical nanoscale waveguide based on plasmonics4 with graphene (Fig. 2a). The main points are as follows. [1] Enhancement of absorption and nonlinear optical effect5 in ...
