Defective Nanotubes Turned into Light Emitters

A diagram of the device proposed by the UPV/EHU’s NanoBio Spectroscopy Group. The result has led to the patent for a new source of light emission; its main feature is that it emits across the whole of the visible and ultraviolet spectrum at ambient temperature, and can be produced using standard manufacturing methods.

Nanodevices for a ‘More than Moore’ World

Nanotech

Moore’s Law – which holds that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit, and hence its processing power, doubles every 18 months – has been the guiding principle of chip design for almost half a century. But with physical limitations to further transistor scaling being reached, Moore’s Law may have met its match. We are entering a ‘More than Moore’ world in which EU-funded researchers are playing an important role. Read More →

A Look at Technocapitalism

Capitalism and socialism have been the primary economic theories that nations have modeled themselves after in the modern era. Throughout history, other economic models have also been used. Feudalism and various forms of command economies have defined much of the human experience. Trade and barter systems were used by the most primitive societies. However, continued exploration of space and the development of new machines might lead to the rise of societal technocapitalism. Read More →
