EU Research Infrastructures
Materials Science and Nanotechnology - The Big Picture

The study of materials science starts small - in the nanometre scales where details are magnified 1,000 million times. To understand the ultra-small structures requires a large-scale operation encompassing extensive facilities and equipment - Research Infrastructures - to support the work of materials scientists.

On 3rd March 2005, the first of a series of press briefings on European Research Infrastructures will be held at one of the world’s most prestigious research centres, the CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford in England.

This first press briefing focuses on exploring new developments in materials science and nanotechnologies and analysing the impact of the research projects carried out in the EU.

The programme features presentations by senior scientists and policy makers such as Janez Potocnik, EU Commissioner for Science and Research and John Wood, Chief Executive of CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, as well as extensive on-site visits.

Research-TV will carry exclusive coverage of the event from Friday 4th March 2005.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Larsen C Ice Shelf rift finally breaks through

A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, after a rift in the ice,...

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
