Dear colleague,

I am glad to announce the second issue of NANOENERGY LETTERS.

This is a newsletter created within the research project NANOPOWER (funded by European Commission, under the FET proactive initiative "Toward Zero-Power ICT" (2zeroP)) and within the coordination action project ZEROPOWER in order to help the circulation of news and thoughts about micro and nano energies.
The ambition is to make it a useful instrument to discuss about these
energies, about their role and potential applications together with the
physical foundations of this discipline.
Most importantly, NANOENERGY LETTERS is open to the contribution of all the
interested readers and is specially aimed at reaching those readers involved
in industry and innovative SMEs as an humble attempt to bridge the gap
between Academia and Industry.

Please download the newsletter here:

Some of the topics in this issue

- Call 9.8 FET Proactive: "Minimising Energy Consumption of Computing to the Limit".

- ZEROPOWER Workshop: Join the community in Cork Oct. 25-27 2011.

- Hot quantum dots: The search for quantum energy harvesters. A new idea from
University of Geneva.

- Automotive application: HAT (Hybrid Autonomous Transceiver) are now available for
test by Wisepower srl.
