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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
