A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds
Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a key quantum motion of electrons in atomically thin crystals on the time scale of a single oscillation cycle of light. They directly ... more
Physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule
The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks directly, but rather by their mutual interactions, which are governed by their outer electron shells. Many chemical processes are based on ... more
Feynman Prizes in nanotechnology awarded to Bartosz A. Grzybowski and Franz J. Giessibl
Foresight Institute announced the laureates for the 2016 Foresight Institute Feynman Prizes.
Established in 1993, The Feynman prize was named in honor of pioneer physicist Richard Feynman. The prize is given in two categories of nanotechnology, one for experiment and the other for theory. F ... more
