Latest Research

An international team led by Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science has built optical nanostructures that can control light dispersion and engineer the index of refraction. This control of light propagation via photonic chips could prove a major breakthrough for telecommunications.

Researchers from Purdue University are using single nanowires to create fully-transparent transistors and circuits for low-cost, flexible color screens for consumer electronics, displays for car windshields and even “electronic” paper. The transparent transistors are assembled from single "nanowires" put onto glass or thin films of flexible plastic.

The Russian Government plans to invest $7.7 billion (US) into nanoscience research in the next 8 years, and to create a state council to encourage government/private sector collaboration, say reports from Russian Press Agency RIA Novosti. Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov called the government’s nanotechnology investment "very significant,” adding, "We are on the threshold of a real nano revolution, capable of overturning all our ideas on life.”
