A research group from Los Alamos National Laboratory has suggested that modulated quantum metasurfaces have the ability to regulate all properties of photonic qubits, a discovery that could influence the fields of quantum information, sensing, and imaging, communications, as well as momentum and energy harvesting.
Using a D-Wave quantum-annealing computer as a testbed, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have shown that it is possible to isolate so-called emergent magnetic monopoles, a class of quasiparticles, creating a new approach to developing "materials by design."
Scientists on the hunt for an unconventional kind of superconductor have produced the most compelling evidence to date that they've found one.
Electronic circuits that compute and store information contain millions of tiny switches that control the flow of electric current. A deeper understanding of how these tiny switches work could help researchers push the frontiers of modern computing.
Prof. PAN Jianwei and Prof. ZHANG Jun from University of Science of Technology of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, collaborating with Prof. CHU Tao's group from Zhejiang University, realized the fastest and miniaturized real-time quantum random number generator with the record-breaking output rate of 18.8 Gbps by combing a state-of-the-art photonic integrated chip with the optimized real-time post processing.
Similar to the entry and exits gates located in subways, parks, or gardens, electronics also have gates. Such gates tend to control the flow of information from one place to another through an electrical signal.
At the University of Tsukuba’s Division of Physics, researchers have utilized the quantum effect known as “spin-locking” to considerably improve the resolution of radio-frequency imaging of nitrogen-vacancy defects present in a diamond.
A team of physicists from the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms and other universities has developed a special type of quantum computer known as a programmable quantum simulator capable of operating with 256 quantum bits, or "qubits."
A new artificial intelligence (AI) method has been developed by Japanese astronomers to eliminate noise in astronomical data caused by random changes in galaxy shapes.
Quantum computers promise great advances in many fields - from cryptography to the simulation of protein folding.
