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.

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...
