Pioneering Networking Researcher Joins European Research Institute
Prof. Dr. Nicholas Maxemchuk takes up position as Chief Researcher at IMDEA Networks.
IMDEA Networks has announced that Dr. Nicholas F. Maxemchuk, Professor at the world-leading Columbia University of New York and a networking pioneer, has joined its Madrid-based research team as Chief Researcher. Professor Maxemchuk’s permanent double appointment is confirmed in a collaborative agreement between IMDEA Networks and Columbia University.
Many of Dr. Maxemchuk’s far-sighted contributions in computer-communications networking have been years ahead of their time and have led to the development of groundbreaking new systems.
His invention of dispersity routing in the 1970s, for example, has recently been applied to ad hoc networks. In 2006 his achievements in the field were recognized with the award of the prestigious 2006 IEEE Koji Kobiyashi Computers and Communications Award.
Prof. Dr. Arturo Azcorra, Director of IMDEA Networks, commented “We are honored that Dr. Maxemchuk has agreed to join our team. Nick brings expertise and research experience that will be invaluable to our Institute. Our younger researchers in particular, whose work will be supervised by Nick, will benefit greatly from working with such a renowned scientist.
The quality of his work is inspirational. Nick’s appointment represents a major milestone in our mission to establish a world-class international research institute here in Madrid. We also look forward to further collaboration with Columbia as a result of our agreement with them.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
