Nature Communications
Nano-photonics meets nano-mechanics
In a recent work published in Nature Communications, ICFO researchers Reserbat-Plantey, Schadler, and Gaudreau, led by ICREA Professors at ICFO F. H. L. Koppens and A. Bachtold and ICFO Professor D. Chang, have presented a novel type of hybrid system, consisting of an on-chip graphene NEMS suspended a few tens of nanometres above nitrogen-vacancy centres (NVCs), which are stable single-photon emitters embedded in nanodiamonds.

Mechanical quanta see the light
Interconnecting different quantum systems is important for future quantum computing architectures, but has proven difficult to achieve. Researchers from the TU Delft and the University of Vienna have now realized a first step towards a universal quantum link based on quantum-mechanical vibrations of a nanomechanical device.

Scientists have shown how to make a low-cost yet high precision glass nanoengraving
In a joint study, scientists have developed a mechanism of laser deposition of patterns on glass with a resolution of 1000 times lower than the width of a human hair. This mechanism allows inexpensively and relatively easy to apply complex patterns to a glass surface, whereby obtaining a spatial resolution of less than 100 nanometers.

Team develops wireless, dissolvable sensors to monitor brain
A team of neurosurgeons and engineers has developed wireless brain sensors that monitor intracranial pressure and temperature and then are absorbed by the body, negating the need for surgery to remove the devices. Such implants, developed by scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, potentially could be used to monitor patients with traumatic brain injuries.

NIST simulates fast, accurate DNA sequencing through graphene nanopore
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have simulated a new concept for rapid, accurate gene sequencing by pulling a DNA molecule through a tiny, chemically activated hole in graphene -- an ultrathin sheet of carbon atoms -- and detecting changes in electrical current.

New particle can track chemo
Tracking the path of chemotherapy drugs in real time and at a cellular level could revolutionize cancer care and help doctors sort out why two patients might respond differently to the same treatment. Researchers at The Ohio State University have found a way to light up a common cancer drug so they can see where the chemo goes and how long it takes to get there.

'Spermbots' could help women trying to conceive (video)
Sperm that don't swim well rank high among the main causes of infertility. To give these cells a boost, women trying to conceive can turn to artificial insemination or other assisted reproduction techniques, but success can be elusive. In an attempt to improve these odds, scientists have developed motorized 'spermbots' that can deliver poor swimmers -- that are otherwise healthy -- to an egg. Their report appears in ACS' journal Nano Letters.

Uncovering oxygen's role in enhancing red LEDs
Last week, an international group of researchers shed light on oxygen's role in enhancing red LEDs and reported that the quantity and location of oxygen in gallium nitride (GaN) can be fine-tuned to improve the optical performance of europium-doped GaN devices. The group includes researchers from Lehigh, Osaka University in Japan, the Instituto Superior Técnico in Portugal, the University of Mount Union in Ohio, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.

How copper makes organic light-emitting diodes more efficient
Copper as a fluorescent material allows for the manufacture of inexpensive and environmentally compatible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Thermally activated delayed fuorescence ensures high light yield. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, CYNORA, and the University of St. Andrews have now measured the underlying quantum mechanics phenomenon of intersystem crossing in a copper complex. The results of this work are reported in Science Advances and contribute to enhancing the energy efficiency of OLEDs.

New LED with luminescent proteins
Scientists from Germany and Spain have discovered a way to create a BioLED by packaging luminescent proteins in the form of rubber. This innovative device gives off a white light which is created by equal parts of blue, green and red rubber layers covering one LED, thus rendering the same effect as with traditional inorganic LEDs but at a lower cost.
