        Samuel M. Khamis discusses his AIP Advances article, "Optimized photolithographic fabrication process for carbon nanotube devices," which discusses a process that produces large arrays of nanotube transistors for applications ranging from chemical sensors to integrated circuit components. The breakthrough procedure comes about thanks to a fast and efficient fabrication method, which allows thousands of devices to be made each second--a couple of orders of magnitude faster than current technologies. The research represents a significant step in the direction of nanotube-based electronic devices.

                COP18 (29/11/12) – Arend Kuster, Managing Director of QScience.com talks about the need for climate science to be open access so all members of the public can use it. He says it was interesting to see the suggested paragraph for the youth involvement being put forward, and how it stressed the need to have access to information about climate change and its effects. He says with so many NGOs and government organisations only having access to peer-reviewed journals if they are affiliated to a university with a subscription, the open access of such information they would be able to make better decisions. He calls on the UNFCCC to set the model for making data available so that people can follow suit.

                      Discussing the IKMemergent project, Mike Powell highlights the potential impact of Open Access and Open Data on knowledge management and creation. At the IMWG workshop in Antwerp, he highlights existing problems with knowledge duplication and waste and how this could be reduced as new means of managing open sources emerge. However, he warns that while open development offers the potential for broader equity in knowledge production and use, it needs to be combined with holistic reviews of how development assistance is implemented to ensure that information is transferred both to the head offices and to the people on the ground.
