Study on cantilever NEMS switches appears in Nature Communications

Stochastic switching of cantilever motion Nanoscale mechanical switches can utilize the noise from their environment to detect small signals. This is demonstrated by researchers at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the TU Delft in an article which appeared in Nature Communications on 31 October. In engineering, noise and nonlinear behaviour are in general unwanted and tend to be avoided. The article demonstrates how these features can be exploited beneficially in nanoscale mechanical systems. The researchers performed experiments with tiny ultra-flexible springboards, known as cantilevers...

Third Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems

Third Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems Time: October 28 - 29, 2013 Place: Sutardja Dai Hall University of California, Berkeley Berkeley, California, USA Message from Symposium Organizers Once again, we look forward to hosting another Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems, a forum that we founded in 2009. Biennially, we bring together researchers who are working on breakthrough improvements in energy efficiency for information processing systems. Our goal is that the Symposium continue to be a venue for the attendees to gain an integrated...

The applications to the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information are now open!

Lisbon, Aug 2, 2013. The Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI) aims at providing advanced curricular and research training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in information sciences and technologies. The DP-PMI is hosted by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), the School of Science and Engineering of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal, and eight associated research centres . The programme is funded mainly by a 2.2 MEuro grant from the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT). The programme will...

NANOENERGY2013 - International Conference, Perugia July 10-13, 2013

International Conference July 10-13, 2013 – Perugia (IT) The first International Conference on Nanoenergy will be held in Perugia , Italy during July 10-13 2013. The aim of Nanoenergy2013 is to bring together researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world and from different disciplines interested in the subject of micro and nanoscale energies. Energy at small scales is a cross-disciplinary field that covers both theoretical and experimental aspects of fundamental and applied sciences ranging from nanotechnology to statistical physics, from...
