University helps gadgets to shrink
The region's Centre of Excellence in Nanotechnology Micro and Photonic Systems (Cenamps) is working with one of the country's leading nanotech companies to build a new research and development facility at Newcastle University - the first of its kind in the UK.
It is hoped the new unit, which will open in the summer, will help electronic companies make more hi-tech computers, televisions and mobile phones which will use less power.
