Coupling a nano-trumpet with a quantum dot enables precise position determination

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 14 июля, 2017 - 14:14
Scientists have succeeded in coupling an extremely small quantum dot with 1,000 times larger trumpet-shaped nanowire. The movement of the nanowire can be detected with a sensitivity of 100 femtometers via the wavelength of the light emitted by the quantum dot. Conversely, the oscillation of the nanowire can be influenced by excitation of the quantum dot with a laser.

New technique controls and measures electron spin voltage

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 13 июля, 2017 - 22:50
Information technologies of the future will likely use electron spin -- rather than electron charge -- to carry information. But first, scientists need to better understand how to control spin and learn to build the spin equivalent of electronic components and tools. Now, researchers have developed a technique to control and measure spin voltage, known as spin chemical potential.

Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 13 июля, 2017 - 22:49
A model system has been presented by researchers that allows the investigation of atomic-scale friction effects and friction dynamics that are similar to those taking place, for instance, in proteins, DNA strands and other deformable nanocontacts. This model system consists of laser-cooled ions, which arrange themselves in so-called Coulomb crystals.
