Will your future computer be made using bacteria?

Scientists are making graphene easier and more environmentally friendly to produce


In order to create new and more efficient computers, medical devices, and other advanced technologies, researchers are turning to nanomaterials: materials manipulated on the scale of atoms or molecules that exhibit unique properties. Graphene--a flake of carbon as thin as a single later of ...

Uncommon mineral discovered in Rembrandt painting

Maestro's Techniques


Rembrandt van Rijn’s paintings are renowned for their masterful representations of light and shadow and a characteristic plasticity generated by a technique called impasto. Now, scientists have analyzed impasto layers in some of Rembrandt’s paintings, and the study, which is published in the ...

Combining spintronics and nanophotonics in 2-D material


Spintronics in materials of just a few atoms thick is an emerging field in which the 'spin' of electrons is used to process data, rather than the charge. Unfortunately, the spin only lasts for a very short time, making it (as yet) difficult to exploit in electronics. Researchers from the Kavli ...


Quantum race accelerates development of silicon quantum chip


The worldwide race to create more, better and reliable quantum processors is progressing fast, as a team of TU Delft scientists led by Professor Vandersypen has realised yet again. In a neck-and-neck race with their competitors, they showed that quantum information of an electron spin can be ...

'God does not play dice'

Experiments tests Einstein's theorem using quantum 'dice'


Random number generators developed at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences, by the groups of ICREA Professors Morgan W. Mitchell and Valerio Pruneri, played a critical role in the historic experiment by the group of Ronald Hanson at TU Delft. The experiment gives the strongest refutation to ...


BASF obtains exclusive rights to market magnetocaloric materials

License agreement with Dutch universities under the auspices of Technology Foundation


BASF New Business GmbH has entered into an agreement with the Dutch Technology Foundation (STW), Delft University of Technology and the University of Amsterdam for licenses on the basic patents for magnetocaloric materials of the manganese iron family. Cooling systems based on these new materials ...


Connecting the (quantum) dots

New spin technique moves researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and Delft University of Technology closer to creating the first viable high-speed quantum computer


Recent research offers a new spin on using nanoscale semiconductor structures to build faster computers and electronics. Literally.University of Pittsburgh and Delft University of Technology researchers reveal in Nature Nanotechnology a new method that better preserves the units necessary to ...


ERC advanced grant for Professor Zandbergen's 'nanolaboratory'


Henny Zandbergen, professor at the Kavli Institute of NanoScience, has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant of 2.5 million euros for his research into improved microscopic technologies. The technologies enable Professor Zandbergen to visualise extremely small structures, such as semiconductor ...


Delft University of Technology patent for manufacturing radio isotopes


Thanks to a newly-developed technology at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, global shortages of radio isotopes for cancer diagnosis could be a thing of the past. This is the message from Prof. Bert Wolterbeek of Delft University of Technology's Reactor Institute Delft (RID) ...


Catalytic teamwork improves activity

Brønsted and Lewis acid sites can work in synergy to increase the catalytic activity of mesoporous materials, claim scientists.


A team led by Ulf Hanefeld at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, made a series mesoporous silicates containing different ratios of aluminium and zirconium metals. They found that in Brønsted acid catalysed reactions, the catalytic activity of the mixed metal silicates was higher ...
