  Study shows link between ancestor's brain and evolution

Photo of article Biologists recognised that the origin of a mouthful of jaws plays a critical role in our history of evolution but they were unable to use fossils to elucidate how. An international team of researchers suggests that the reorganisation of the brain and sense organs could shed light on the evolutionary success of vertebrates (animals with backbones). Presented in the journal Nature, the study takes a close look at the brain of a 400 million year old fossilised jawless fish, an evolutionary intermediate between the living jawless and jawed vertebrates. The research was partially funded under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

  Superconductors and X-ray beams: the drawing shapes

Photo of article An Italian-British team of scientists has succeeded in drawing superconducting shapes using an X-ray beam. Presented in the journal Nature Materials, the study shows how being able to create and control tiny superconducting structures could lead to innovative electronic devices. The research was funded in part by COMEPHS ('Controlling mesoscopic phase separation'), a project supported by the EU. COMEPHUS was backed under the 'Nanotechnologies and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices' (NMP) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) to the tune of EUR 3.18 million.

  Scientists surpass quantum measurement sensitivity

Photo of article Pioneering researchers in Europe have done what no one has been able to do: surpass the limit on the sensitivity of a quantum measurement. The result could play a key role in interferometry and quantum limits of measurement. Presented in the journal Nature, the research was funded in part the EMALI ('Engineering, manipulation and characterization of quantum states of matter and light') project, which clinched a Marie Curie Research Training Networks grant worth more than EUR 439 000 under the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), to develop general theoretical and experimental techniques for engineering, manipulating and characterising quantum states of matter and light.

  Researchers prove safety of quantum cryptology

Photo of article Scientists in Belgium and Spain have proved for the first time that new systems of quantum cryptology are much safer than current security systems. EU support for the research came from the Q—ESSENCE ('Quantum interfaces, sensors and communication based on entanglement') project, which received nearly EUR 5 million from 'Information and communication technologies' (ICT) Theme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and from the PERCENT (‘Percolating entanglement and quantum information resources through quantum networks’) project, which was awarded EUR 700 000 as part of a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant under FP7. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

Notes:
To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
