at the UNSW. In the 1990s, she spent 6 years as a Research Fellow working with Professor Sir Michael Pepper FRS at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, UK, in quantum electronics. Her research in nanoelectronics combines molecular beam epitaxy and scanning tunnelling microscopy to develop novel electronic devices at the atomic scale. She has published more than 260 papers in refereed journals (with over 3200 citations), published a book on Nanotechnology, four book chapters on quantum electronics, has filed four patents and has presented over 50 invited and plenary presentations at international conferences. In 2005 ...
With nanotechnology, a large set of materials and improved products rely on a change in the physical properties when the feature sizes are shrunk. Nanoparticles, for example, take advantage of their dramatically increased surface area to volume ratio. Their optical properties, e.g. fluorescence , become a function of the particle diameter. When brought into a bulk material, nanoparticles can strongly influence the mechanical properties of the material, like stiffness or elasticity. For example, traditional polymers can be reinforced by nanoparticles resulting in novel materials which can be used as lightweight replacements for ...
Silicon back in the race for quantum computers
The odds that a futuristic quantum computer will be built of silicon have received a boost, thanks to new technology recently invented by researchers in the Centre for Quantum Computer Technology (CQCT). They’ve made a silicon chip that can control and observe individual electrons and they are now using this chip to make quantum test chips. The potential speed and power of a quantum computer is known to far exceed even the biggest supercomputers of today.  What is still unclear though is the best method to build one. Teams around the world are in a race to create the first quantum computer – there are ten or more competing ... market research, surveys and trends
Quantum Leap!
If you are interested in advances in technology and how they might effect our precious resources (water, food, land, air, energy, time), relationships, society, explorations (space, ocean, the human body), lifestyles, transportation, education, medicine, health care and fashions, then this web log is for you. It is also for you if, like me, you see technology as a route to growth that is almost without end. :: Michelle Simmons is among the physicists racing to keep us computing by making the Quantum Computer a reality! As the limits of traditional silicon look set to hit a ceiling in the next few years, the work of Professor ... market research, surveys and trends


Science shines at Eureka Prizes - News - UNSW - Science
UNSW researchers have won an unprecedented six Australian Museum Eureka Prizes - the "Oscars" of Australian science. The UNSW tally is the highest by any institution in the 19-year history of the Eureka Prizes. Five members of the UNSW Faculty of Science shared in the awards. Eureka Prizes reward outstanding achievements in Australian scientific research, leadership and innovation, communication and journalism and school science. Twenty prizes worth over $200,000 were awarded to scientific leaders, innovative researchers, science educators, journalists and schoolchildren before a "who's who" of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Fellow honours - Research at UQ - The University of Queensland ...
UQ’s reputation as one of Australia's leading research institutions has been further enhanced by the latest announcements of both Federaation and Smart State Fellowships. Professor of Visual Neuroscience at UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute, Mandyam Srinivasan, will lead a $2.5 million project aiming to improve robot technology, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), through better understanding of bee behaviour. Professor Srinivasan has won a $1.25 million 2007 Smart State Premier’s Fellowship, which is matched by funding from UQ. His team has spent more than two decades unlocking the mysteries of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
"Quantum computer" a stage closer with silicon breakthrough
The remarkable ability of an electron to exist in two places at once has been controlled in the most common electronic material � silicon � for the first time. The research findings � published in Nature by a UK�Dutch team from UCL, the University of Surrey, Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, and the FOM Institute for Plasma Physics near Utrecht - marks a significant step towards the making of an affordable "quantum computer". According to the research paper in Nature the scientists have created a simple version of Schrodinger�s cat � which is paradoxically simultaneously both dead and alive - in the cheap and simple ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Quantum crystal stops light in its tracks
Australian and New Zealand researchers have developed a device that brings light to a stop and releases, making it the most practical quantum memory yet developed. The rare-earth crystal is four times more efficient than similar devices that store information as light and brings superfast quantum computing another step closer. The research led by scientists at the Australian National University 's (ANU) Laser Physics Centre in Canberra is reported today in the journal Nature . Storing and recalling quantum information is necessary for quantum communication systems, such as computers and encrypted communication systems.

WikiAnswers - List all colleges in india offering astrophysics courses
While several premier institutions offer courses at the PG level, astronomy/astrophysics are offered as one of the subjects in BSc at a handful of universities like Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad, Shivaji University, Kolhapur, the University of Lucknow and the University of Chennai. The eligibility is class XII (Sc). The study of cosmic sciences - astronomy, planetary science and astrophysics requires a sound base in mathematics and physics at the undergraduate level, so make sure you opt for either of these at the BSc level. Astronomy and astrophysics are taught as special MSc programmes in the Physics ...
