Direct Coupling of Quantum Dots and Trapped Ions May Help Advance Development of Quantum Computers

Physicists at the Universities of Bonn and Cambridge have succeeded in linking two completely different quantum systems to one another. In doing so, they have taken an important step forward on the way to a quantum computer. [More]
Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

Quantum Dots Help Sharpen Nanoscale Microscopy

The 2014 chemistry Nobel Prize recognized important microscopy research that enabled greatly improved spatial resolution. This innovation, resulting in nanometer resolution, was made possible by making the source (the emitter) of the illumination quite small and by moving it quite close to the object being imaged.
