The NANO-TEC project announces its ‘Yellow Pages‘ (YP) to be publicly available. The Yellow Pages comprise an information repository which offers search for and access to experts, institutions, projects, working groups and results in the field of future nanoelectronics, as in Beyond CMOS, in Europe.
The European Commission ICT theme of the 7th Framework Program is funding a Coordination Action project entitled "ECOSYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY and DESIGN for NANOELECTRONICS" (NANO-TEC, ICT-2010-257964). The project started on 1st September 2010 and its aims are to identify the emerging generation of device concepts and technologies for ICT, as well as to build a joint technology-design community in order to enhance research efforts in nanoelectronics in the European research area.
Therefore, the NANO-TEC consortium has developed a state-of-the-art web platform for working groups, facilitating discussions, meetings, communications and recently offers access to an information repository called ‘NANO-TEC-Yellow Pages‘ at www.fp7-nanotec.eu/search_yp. While the whole platform offers an interface to disseminate the project results to the public and to experts in the field, the “Yellow Pages” will help experts in nanoelectronics, who will be able to gather in specialist groups, thus becoming a reference point to examine achieved results, existing competences and contact information in the field of future nanoelectronics in Europe.
Categories and taxonomy have been implemented within the open source CMS system Drupal to form an information repository, which enables the NANO-TEC web platform to store technical information in repositories in a structured and semantically order that can be used as Yellow Pages.About NANO-TEC
NANO-TEC is led by the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology and comprises 10 other partners who are the Valtion Teknillinen Tutkimuskeskus VTT from Finland, the German edacentrum and the Foschungszentrum Juelich GmbH, Chalmers Technical University of Sweden, the Polish Institute of Electron Technology, Delft University of Technology from the Netherlands, the Greek National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos”, Tyndall National Institute from Ireland, the Ecole Politechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique CNRS. The consortium is assisted by an Advisory Committee of global experts with representatives of CEA-LETI, IMEC, Politecnico de Torino and AENEAS-CATRENE, who have global expertise and strong links to industry. Thus, the findings and activities of NANO-TEC ensure a broad coverage of its topic at European level.

Physicists from Regensburg and Marburg, Germany have succeeded in taking a slow-motion movie of speeding electrons in a solid driven by a strong light wave. In the process, they have unraveled a novel quantum phenomenon, which will be reported in the forthcoming edition of Nature.
The advent of ever faster electronics featuring clock rates up to the multiple-gigahertz range has revolutionized our day-to-day life. Researchers and...
Researchers have developed an ultrafast light-emitting device that can flip on and off 90 billion times a second and could form the basis of optical computing.
Joint BioEnergy Institute study identifies bacterial protein that is key to protecting rice against bacterial blight
A bacterial signal that when recognized by rice plants enables the plants to resist a devastating blight disease has been identified by a multi-national team...
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.
By allowing indoor occupants to more precisely control the energy and sunlight passing through a window, the new materials could significantly reduce costs for...
Argonne scientists used Mira to identify and improve a new mechanism for eliminating friction, which fed into the development of a hybrid material that exhibited superlubricity at the macroscale for the first time. Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) researchers helped enable the groundbreaking simulations by overcoming a performance bottleneck that doubled the speed of the team's code.
While reviewing the simulation results of a promising new lubricant material, Argonne researcher Sanket Deshmukh stumbled upon a phenomenon that had never been...
