Here we introduce two-step absorption replacing two-photon absorption as the primary optical excitation process. Under suitable conditions, two-step absorption shows the same quadratic optical nonlinearity as two-photon absorption. We present a photoresist system based on a photoinitiator supporting two-step absorption, a scavenger and a well-established triacrylate. We show that this system allows for printing state-of-the-art 3D nanostructures and beyond.
For 20 years, nanoscale 3D printing has been based on two-photon absorption, requiring expensive pulsed lasers. Now, via a two-step absorption process, such printing has been demonstrated using a low-cost, low-power continuous-wave laser diode, showing the potential for dramatic cost reductions in 3D nanoprinting.
"We've always done it that way," has been described as the most dangerous sentence in the world. But you're here because you like to challenge the status quo, so start experimenting with this fundamental model for thinking and problem-solving. First Principles Thinking is a means to challenge assumptions and solve complex problems by breaking them down into their most basic elements and reassembling them from the ground up.

Nucleic acid delivery has applications ranging from tissue engineering to vaccine development to infectious disease. Cationic polymer condensed nucleic acids are used with surface-coated porous scaffolds and are able to promote long-term gene expression. However, due to surface loading of the scaffold, there is a limit to the amount of nucleic acid that can be loaded, resulting in decreasing expression rate over time. In addition, surface-coated scaffolds are generally non-injectable. Here, it is demonstrated that cationic polymer condensed nucleic acids can be effectively loaded into injectable granular hydrogel scaffolds by stabilizing the condensed nucleic acid into a lyophilized powder, loading the powder into a bulk hydrogel, and then fragmenting the loaded hydrogel.
Greenhouse gas emission intensity (g CO2e/kWh) is calculated as the ratio of CO2e emissions from public electricity production (as a share of CO2 equivalent emissions from public electricity and heat production related to electricity production), and gross electricity production. EEA early estimate for 2020.
Our main findings show that smartphones are the main energy consumers for web browsing and instant messaging applications, whereas the LTE wireless network is the main consumer for heavy data applications such as video play, video chat and virtual reality applications. By using small cell offloading and mobile edge caching, our results show that the energy consumption of popular and emerging applications could potentially be reduced by over 80%.
Back-and-forth with couple of twists we ended up agreeing that is a tough question since it is not obvious what ‘the best’ is. Is it solely to complete the legal standpoint & requirement? User Experience first? Transparency all the way? Everyone had their fair share of the argument. ‘The best’, in this context as well, is a highly subjective and elusive concept.
Digital advertising is tiring. In a world ruled by interruptive marketing, we live our lives in a constant state of ad fatigue, and many of us are now de facto pros at avoiding ads. We have the “skip ad” location memorized on Youtube, we employ ad blockers, we say no to cookie gathering, and we avoid sites that abuse them — opting for less intrusive experiences.
Une compétition plus relevée que la Ligue des champions. Mais il a fallu faire des choix. Choisir la crème de la crème. Pour faciliter la sélection, n’ont été retenues que des entreprises françaises. Oui, parce qu’entre les compagnies aériennes qui retirent le plastique à bord, BMW qui nous fait des voitures écolos, ou le Qatar qui annonce des stades écolo et soutenables (6500 morts quand même hein), il aurait fallu des années pour départager de tels talents.
Public speaking. Attending a networking event. Confronting a coworker. These are uncomfortable tasks, but sometimes need to be performed for us to grow professionally. So how do you move out of your comfort zone? It’s simple: be honest about your excuses; recognize your strengths and take advantage of them; and finally, jump in. If you make a few mistakes along the way, don’t worry. It’s just another part of the learning process.
The new design sees a single atom entangle with a series of photons, allowing it to process and store more information, as well as run at room temperature — unlike the prototype machines being developed by the likes of Google and IBM.

Lead by Prof. Wolfgang Heinrich, the FBH microwave department and its III-V electronic labs have been involved in key research relating to millimeter waves and THz components for communications and radar.
Over the last nine years, the subscription economy has grown by nearly 435%. But with so many to choose from, what separates the good from the bad? Bringing together founders from software, food and femtech, this Sifted Talks will dive into what it takes to build and implement a successful subscription model.
Creating an innovation culture is a complex task of orchestrating people, teams and mindsets, and no matter how many management books you read it is always unpredictable. There are certain aspects that seem to trip organisations up time and time again — get these right and you have a fighting chance of success. Sifted put the most common questions we hear from corporate innovation leaders to Herminia Ibarra, professor of organisational behaviour at London Business School.
Nanomaterials have many applications, especially in electronics, but they have one issue: They are so small that they don’t reflect enough light to show fine details, such as colors, even with the aid of the most powerful microscopes. Now, researchers from UC Riverside may have come up with a solution. They have conceived of an imaging technology that compresses lamp light into a nanometer-sized spot, holding that light at the end of a silver nanowire. This allows it to reveal previously invisible details such as colors.
Not every good new idea gets the recognition it deserves. Promising novel ideas are often overlooked, ridiculed, or dismissed. But why? A team of researchers from four different universities in the U.S. and China joined forces to address this question. They hypothesized that an important contributor to the odds of recognizing new and creative ideas is the type of motivational drive an individual is experiencing.
Creativity is the ability to produce ideas that are both novel and valuable. It's underpinned by mental processes such as thinking laterally, reasoning by analogy to new solutions, solving open-ended problems, and employing judgment to evaluate new ideas.Creativity is a skill that is difficult to replace with computers (at least for the time being!). There is no cookbook on how to be creative. Creativity is often exhibited at an early age and can be nurtured and developed throughout childhood and into adulthood.
Of most interest for our purposes, the researchers found that approximately 20% of the creative ideas, for both physicists and writers, occurred at times when they were not thinking about the problem to which the idea pertained. They occurred while they were away from their work and thinking about something else. Moreover, these ideas were especially likely to be experienced as “aha” moments and to contain solutions to problems for which they had previously been at an impasse—that is, at a point where the problem had begun to seem unsolvable.
Innovation consultants advise their clients to “Think outside the box” to boost creativity and adaptability. So, what is this box, and how does one think outside it?
