Discusses issues with the exploration of e-Research tools and techniques.

Potential users of e-Infrastructures often lack the time and resources to explore their possible uses. One respondent commented:

"I can see that there are things there which we probably could be able to use in the future but first we’d have to work out how [...] if we had the time to actually be able to get far enough into the technology to be able to actually utilise it properly." (researcher)

Enablers

  • Exemplars and use cases, developed not as demonstrations of technical feasibility but as ways to explore possible uses and socio-technical configurations can help to further uptake by communicating a vision or triggering competitiveness:
    having stuff where you can show that people have done really new science using those tools [...] it seems to be working quite well in terms of getting engagement and we're seeing that other communities just like these things - like the systems biology communities are beginning to be very keen to play and join in." (researcher)
  • Clearly, it is important for the community to formulate clearly where e-Infrastructure usage has made a significant difference to researchers and to disseminate these success stories widely to inspire more researchers to start engaging
  • It is important that the early exploration of technological options is supported and conducted as a conversation between researchers, service providers and intermediaries

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
