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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
