Squeezable nano electromechanical switches with quantum tunneling function

11 hours ago by Denis Paiste MIT electrical engineering graduate student Farnaz Niroui works in a glovebox, where she prepares a sample for deposition of gold. The glovebox is attached through a transfer line to a thermal evaporator that deposits the gold coating onto squeezable switches, or squitches, which Niroui designs, fabricates, and tests in the Organic and Nanostructured Electronics Lab at MIT Continue reading

My drug-filled nanospheres heal at the speed of light

Our bodies have a habit of scattering medicine to the wrong places, so Adah Almutairi is targeting diseases with light-activated nanoparticles What medical challenge does your nano-engineering address? Biology operates at the nanoscale, so materials designed at that size can respond better to disease. Right now, we have very little control of where, when and how drugs act in the body.

Photo First: Light Captured as Both Particle and Wave

Its one of those enduring Zen koans of science that weve all grown up with: Light behaves as both a particle and a waveat the same time. Einstein taught us that, so were all generally on board, but to actually understand what it means would require several Ph.D.s and a thorough understanding of quantum physics Continue reading

New Research Signals Big Future For Quantum Radar

A prototype quantum radar that has the potential to detect objects which are invisible to conventional systems has been developed by an international research team led by a quantum information scientist at the University of York. The new breed of radar is a hybrid system that uses quantum correlation between microwave and optical beams to detect objects of low reflectivity such as cancer cells or aircraft with a stealth capability. Because the quantum radar operates at much lower energies than conventional systems, it has the long-term potential for a range of applications in biomedicine including non-invasive NMR scans Continue reading
