In today’s electronics, the information storage and processing are performed by independent technologies. The information-processing is based on semiconductor (silicon) devices, while non-volatile data storage relies on ferromagnetic metals. Integrating these tasks on a single chip and within the same material technology would enable disruptively new device concepts opening the way towards ultra-h ...

The stabilization of molten corium is recognised as essential if a safe and stable state is to be reached following a severe accident. Among the possible options, In-Vessel Melt Retention (IVMR) appears as an attractive solution that would minimize the risks of containment failure (less Hydrogen produced, no corium-concrete interaction), if it can be proved to be feasible.The strategy is already a ...

Fundamental and Applied Electromagnetics of Nano-Carbons (FAEMCAR)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

"Owing to very small dimensions of nanostructures in one or more directions, spatial confinement of charge carriers is fully achieved, providing thereby a discrete spectrum of their energy states. In addition, intrinsic spatial inhomogeneity of nanostructures dictates nanoscale inhomogeneity of the surrounding electromagnetic fields. Therefore, understanding the properties of nanostructures requir ...
