Optical nano-tweezers take over the control of nano-objects

Researchers at ICFO have invented nano-optical tweezers capable of trapping and moving an individual nano-object in 3 dimensions using only the force of light

04-Mar-2014

As science and technology go nano, scientists search for new tools to manipulate, observe and modify the "building blocks" of matter at the nanometer scale. With this in mind, the recent publication in Nature Nanotechnology in which ICFO researchers demonstrate for the first time the ability to ...

Viewing macro behaviors of ultra-cold quantum gases through the micro-world

In a recent study published in Science researchers have been able to observed, for the first time, the collective spin dynamics of ultra-cold fermions with large spins

15-Jan-2014

Understanding collective behavior of ultra-cold quantum gases is of great interest since it is intimately related to many encountered systems in nature such as human behavior, swarms of birds, traffic jam, sand dunes, neutron stars, fundamental magnetic properties of solids, or even ...

Cleaner and greener cities with integrated transparent solar cells

High power conversion of new solar cells that are thin, flexible, and transparent makes them ideal for a wealth of new applications

23-Oct-2013

Imagine buildings in which the windows allow the sun's light to enter, and at the same time capture the energy from the sun needed to meet all their energy needs. In this seemingly futuristic scenario, the windows become productive solar cells that help us decrease our reliance on fossil fuels ...

An optical switch based on a single nano-diamond

ICFO scientists have shown that a nano-size diamond at room temperature can act as an efficient optical switch controllable with light

17-Oct-2013

A recent study led by researchers of the ICFO (Institute of Photonic Sciences) demonstrates that a single nano-diamond can be operated as an ultrafast single-emitter optical switch operating at room temperature. Electronic transistors have become a key component to modern electronics, drastically ...

Graphene: A material that multiplies the power of light

ICFO scientists show that graphene is highly efficient in converting light to electricity

27-Feb-2013

Bottles, packaging, furniture, car parts... all made of plastic. Today we find it difficult to imagine our lives without this key material that revolutionized technology over the last century. There is wide-spread optimism in the scientific community that graphene will provide similar paradigm ...
