Las máquinas más pequeñas del mundo ganan el Nobel de Química 2016

La Real Academia de las Ciencias de Suecia ha concedido hoy el premio Nobel de Química al francés Jean-Pierre Sauvage, al británico Fraser Stoddart y al holandés Bernard Feringa por "diseñar y producir máquinas moleculares". Los investigadores han desarrollado moléculas con movimientos controlables, que pueden llevar a cabo tareas cuando se les proporciona energía. El trabajo de los tres "demuestra cómo la miniaturización de la tecnología puede conducir a una revolución", según ha indicado la Academia en un comunicado. "Los galardonados con el Nobel de Química de 2016 han miniaturizado máquinas y han llevado la química a una nueva dimensión", añade la nota.

    "Peter Grünberg was one of the first physicists to understand the potential of nascent nanotechnologies for fundamental research. He discovered giant magnetoresistance, or GMR: a large change in electrical resistance induced by a small magnetic field in stacks of ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers." says Albert Fert* in Peter Grünberg's Obituary in Nature.

    According to a working document of the European Commission (EC) of June 7, the next scientific EU's 2021-27 R&D programme (Horizon Europe) will not cover the publication fees for articles to be publised in hybrid open-access journals (those journals that are neither subscription-only nor fully open, instead offering authors both publishing options after paying the article processing charges (APCs) for open-acess).
