Cluster of Forming Stars Discovered at Very Edge of Milky Way Galaxy

Astronomers using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, have found a cluster of stars forming at the very edge of our Milky Way galaxy. [More]
Quantum Imaging Centre Opens at the Glasgow Science Centre

Quantum Imaging Centre Opens at the Glasgow Science Centre

Based in Glasgow, QuantIC, the Quantum Imaging Centre, will commercialise cameras built with newly-developed quantum technology, with the potential to create affordable handheld video cameras capable of seeing areas of the spectrum only previously visible with large and expensive devices. More than 30 industry partners will help QuantIC’s imaging systems bring new benefits to the UK economy. [More]

Multiprover Interactive Proof System Gains Power by Exploiting Quantum Entanglement

Multiprover Interactive Proof System Gains Power by Exploiting Quantum Entanglement

A big question for researchers in quantum computing is, where does quantum physics give us an advantage? CQT researcher Joe Fitzsimons and his collaborator Thomas Vidick from Caltech have added to the list. Specifically, they give an example of a “multiprover interactive proof system" that gains power by exploiting quantum entanglement. [More]

JQI Theorists Propose New Magnetic Phase for a Bose Gas

Strongly correlated electronic systems, like superconductors, display remarkable electronic and magnetic properties, and are of considerable research interest. These systems are fermionic, meaning they are composed of a class of particle called a fermion. [More]

SLAC Plays Key Role in SuperCDMS SNOLAB Dark Matter Experiment

Deciphering the nature of dark matter – the mysterious substance that makes up about 85 percent of the matter in the universe yet has never been directly seen – is one of the most important quests in particle physics today. [More]
Study Results Provide Key Insights into Mysterious Environment Around Supermassive Black Holes

Study Results Provide Key Insights into Mysterious Environment Around Supermassive Black Holes

A research team observed M77 by ALMA and discovered that organic molecules are concentrated in a region surrounding a supermassive black hole at its center. [More]
ESO's MUSE Instrument Provides Astronomers Best Ever 3D View of Deep Universe

ESO's MUSE Instrument Provides Astronomers Best Ever 3D View of Deep Universe

The MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope has given astronomers the best ever three-dimensional view of the deep Universe. After staring at the Hubble Deep Field South region for only 27 hours, the new observations reveal the distances, motions and other properties of far more galaxies than ever before in this tiny piece of the sky. They also go beyond Hubble and reveal previously invisible objects. [More]
