Researchers Show How Electrical Properties of Strontium Ruthenate Superconductor Can be Altered by Strain

In the early 1970s, in the basement of Clark Hall, the Cornell team of professors David Lee and Robert Richardson, along with then-graduate student Douglas Osheroff, first observed superfluid helium-3. For that breakthrough, the catalyst for further research into low-temperature physics, the trio was awarded the 1996 Nobel Prize in physics. [More]

Scientists Take Another Step Toward Quantum Computing

Scientists Take Another Step Toward Quantum Computing

Quantum computers could allow biochemists to simulate new molecular properties to create novel drugs in ways that would take the fastest existing computers decades. [More]
Researchers Propose a Physical Layout for Using Aharonov-Casher Effect

Researchers Propose a Physical Layout for Using Aharonov-Casher Effect

Quantum computers hold great potential, but they remain hard to build because their basic components—individual quantum systems like atoms, electrons or photons—are fragile. A relentless and noisy background constantly bombards the computer’s data. [More]
Scientists Efficiently Simulate Quantum Walk on New Design for Primitive Quantum Computer

Scientists Efficiently Simulate Quantum Walk on New Design for Primitive Quantum Computer

Scientists and engineers from the Universities of Bristol and Western Australia have developed how to efficiently simulate a “quantum walk” on a new design for a primitive quantum computer. [More]
Researchers Achieve Robust Quantum Anomalous Hall State in Topological Insulators

Researchers Achieve Robust Quantum Anomalous Hall State in Topological Insulators

Laptop computer users operating their devices on their laps will be familiar with the heat they generate, which comes from electrical resistance converting waste energy to heat. Scientists dream of creating electronic devices with little or no resistance to the flow of electricity, in order to reduce heat output, save energy, and extend device capabilities. [More]
