Unconventional Computing with a spin(-wave)

We rely heavily on electronics for virtually everything we do. But actually, it does not necessarily need to be electrons that do all the job. Edoardo Albisetti, an Assistant Professor at Politecnico Milano, does his research on magnonic circuits that rely on spin currents as information carriers. To create the magnonic circuits, Edoardo Albisetti and

Atomic perfectionism

Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) relies on quantum tunnelling for imaging and manipulation of objects on atomic scale. It is one of the most precise techniques developed by physicists in the last century. 35 years after its conception, we see STM finding its way to applications beyond purely fundamental science. One of the pioneers of STM

Everything is under control

Quantum computers are one of the most exciting developments of today’s physics. There are a lot of open questions in this field: on which technical platform they should be built, how should they work, which algorithms should they use, just to name a few. Michelle Simmons is a Professor at the University of New South

Quantum Computer out of the glovebox

Research in many fields of modern physics requires micro- or nanoscale devices. Nanofabrication has achieved a truly amazing level of sophistication: physicists routinely deal with atomic-scale materials and devices. Typically, such feats require stringent cleanroom environment: many chemicals used for device fabrication are toxic, while even the tiniest speck of dust can ruin the performance

Happy National Nanotechnology Day

We celebrate the National Nanotechnology Day (USA) on October 9th, which pays homage to the nanometer scale: 1 nm equals 1 x 10-9 m (one billionth of a meter).  The day highlights nanotechnology and helps raise awareness of how it currently impacts our lives in products we may use every day. Furthermore, it focuses on

Across the Universe: Building detectors to see the first light

The oldest light in the Universe is called Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), or relic radiation. It began travelling through space when the universe became transparent enough for the electromagnetic radiation. CMB has “seen it all” and since its discovery about 50 years ago, gives us a unique glimpse into the events and physics of the

How DNA storage and Heidelberg Instruments MLA series go together

Lately, a Nature article inspired us to take a look at our MLA Maskless Aligner series. The authors described a low-cost approach to DNA data storage, using photolithographic synthesis*. In principle, when using DNA data storage, information is stored by encoding binary data into the four nucleic bases of DNA. To access it, DNA is
