Logik mit Atomen: das kleinste "Oder" der Welt

Wissenschaftler der Uni Hamburg konnten erstmals ein funktionierendes Spintronik-Logik-Bauteil verwirklichen, das aus wenigen magnetischen Atomen aufgebaut ist. Beim Schalten des realisierten logischen Oder-Gatters ist im Gegensatz zu herkoemmlichen elektronischen Bauteilen kein Stromfluss noetig, da nur die magnetische Ausrichtung der Atome umgeschaltet wird.

Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 - inspiring ingenuity in energy solutions

Flash forward 20 years... What if our best efforts to lower carbon emissions, wean off fossil fuels, and plan for a soaring population weren't enough? Would we ask ourselves why we didn't take action sooner, transforming the ideas from our greatest innovators into the technologies needed to prepare for a more secure and sustainable future?

Highly sensitive graphene biosensors based on surface plasmon resonance

Adding a few graphene layers onto the conventional gold-film surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor will boost up its sensitivity dramatically. The improved sensitivity comes from the graphene layer's increased adsorption of biomolecules and the graphene layer's optical modification to the SPR.
