The image shows arrays of self-referenced and self-heterodyned Whispering-Gallery Raman microlasers for single nanoparticle detection.
It sounds like a scene from a science fiction novel - an army of tiny weaponized robots traveling around a human body, hunting down malignant tumours and destroying them from within.
Ultrashort-laser pulses were used to write ripples on the surface of sapphire. The self-organised nano-structure of ripples is a perfect sensing surface after coating with a nanometre-thin layer of gold made by evaporation or sputtering.
The goal is to re-design computing systems modeled after the brain's biological processing capabilities to be able to assess and integrate ever-larger quantities of data.
This funding opportunity uses the U54 research grant mechanism. There is no award amount specified for this funding opportunity.
Nanotech Security has announced that it will acquire Fortress Optical Features, a producer of optical thin-films used as security threads in the banknotes of several currencies, for up to $17.5 million.
After an introduction by JAIMA President will begin with the "Historical Perspective of Nanotechnology" that will include a discussion of the controversies that have occurred over the years.
