NANOPOWER Project ended. The reviewers comment is: excellent results!

(The NANOPOWER consortium. From left: Clivia Sotomayor Torres, Luca Gammaitoni, Markus Buttiker, Fabian Hartman, Bjorn Sothman, Jouni Ahopelto. Professor M. Buttiker, very sadly died on 4 October 2013).



The NANOPOWER project has completed the third year of activity and has reached the end of thefunded period.

It was initially conceived in order to address the powering issue in microscale electronic devices and we are glad to communicate that it has been fully developed according the initial plan. The scientific objective of this project was to study energy efficiency with the specific aim of identifying new directions for energy-harvesting technologies. With this aim, three different classes of prospective power generators have been considered in a coordinated effort by the six research groups composing the NANOPOWER consortium.

These are:
- nonlinear nanomechanical oscillators
- heat rectification devices
- quantum harvesters.

NANOENERGY2013 - International Conference, Perugia July 10-13, 2013

International Conference July 10-13, 2013 – Perugia (IT)

The first International Conference on Nanoenergy will be held in Perugia , Italy during July 10-13 2013.

The aim of Nanoenergy2013 is to bring together researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world and from different disciplines interested in the subject of micro and nanoscale energies.
Energy at small scales is a cross-disciplinary field that covers both theoretical and experimental aspects of fundamental and applied sciences ranging from nanotechnology to statistical physics, from computer science to biomedicine.
This conference, supported by the European Commission through the “Toward zero power” initiative, provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.
