Jani Kivioja – Graphene: not just a Geek Gamble
Jani Kivioja – Graphene: not just a Geek Gamble Graphene FET Flagship is an ambitious European project focused on the eponymous new wonder material. Graphene, a one-atom thick layer of carbon, is light, transparent and strong, whose characteristics have yet to be fully discovered.
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale
Specialized invisible needles make us see surfaces at the nanoscale A cantilever is a very thin single needle currently used for quality control at the nanoscale, but to improve and speed up the process scientists are developing an array of needles, a cantilever array, functioning simultaneously.
The achievement of making an object totally invisible could speed things up
The achievement of making an object totally invisible could speed things up One of the brains behind the invisible cloak is Professor Sir John Pendry at Imperial College London. “The cloak design has been around since 2006 when David Smith and I published our paper, but the first implementations were for radar waves.
