More unilateralism: Germ warfare conference suspended
. An international conference on strengthening a biological and chemical weapons ban breaks up after the US presses for it to end. 2:50:27 PM
Small-diameter nanotubes can become superconducting
. "The tubes, which have diameters of only 4 ¥ 10-8 cm, appear to become superconducting at about 15 K - much higher than the liquid helium temperatures normally associated with superconductivity... Calculations indicate that the smaller the tube diameter, the higher the superconducting temperature." CERN Courier Dec 6 2001 12:04:43 PM
Researchers Spin Electrons with Electricity
The team's results, described in a report appearing today in the journal Nature, may one day help to scientists realize the ideal of spintronics—quantum computing based on electron spin states rather than charge. .. "It's a scalable, controllable way to manipulate the electron's spin at the nanometer scale.." 12:13:06 AM
