As there is a difficulty in understanding the canonical scheme of the Galactic chemical evolution of the alpha-rich giant stars with theoretical young ages, it has been categorized as an abnormal population.
Scientists from the Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University used optical tweezers for the first time inside superfluid helium.
For the first time, detailed data on the search for dark matter using a global network of optical magnetometers has been published by an international group of scientists with primary participation from the PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM).
Computers play an important role in many aspects of life today. Digital computers are the most widely used, while quantum computers are well known. However, the least known computers are the so-called Stochastic Pulse Computers.
Researchers at PSI have compared the electron distribution below the oxide layer of two semiconductors. The investigation is part of an effort to develop particularly stable quantum bits –and thus, in turn, particularly efficient quantum computers. They have now published their latest research, which is supported in part by Microsoft, in the scientific journal Advanced Quantum Technologies.
Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) protocols enable cryptographic keys to be shared between distant parties with an intrinsic security guaranteed by the laws of quantum mechanics. This is made possible by the transmission of single photons, the elementary particles of which light is made of.
Perovskites are hybrid compounds made from metal halides and organic constituents. They show great potential in a range of applications, e.g. LED lights, lasers, and photodetectors, but their major contribution is in solar cells, where they are poised to overtake the market from their silicon counterparts.
Phase transitions are everywhere, ranging from water boiling to snowflakes melting, and from magnetic transitions in solids to cosmological phase transitions in the early universe. Particularly intriguing are quantum phase transitions that occur at temperatures close to absolute zero and are driven by quantum rather than thermal fluctuations.
COMSOL, the maker of the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software, has opened registration for COMSOL Day: Version 6.0, a series of online events held around the world for the computer-aided engineering (CAE) market.
Researchers at QuTech—a collaboration between the Delft University of Technology and TNO—have taken an important step for semiconductor spin qubits by surpassing the 99% barrier for two-qubit gate fidelity.
The goal of nuclear physics is to describe all matter from its simplest building blocks: quarks and gluons.
Quantum Brilliance, a German-Australian manufacturer of innovative quantum computing hardware, today announced a joint research project with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF and the University of Ulm to develop new techniques for the fabrication and control of diamond-based quantum microprocessors.
Researchers from RIKEN and QuTech—a collaboration between TU Delft and TNO— have achieved a key milestone toward the development of a fault-tolerant quantum computer.
Numbers like p, e and f often turn up in unexpected places in science and mathematics. Pascal's triangle and the Fibonacci sequence also seem inexplicably widespread in nature.
Multiverse Computing today announced a new Fair Price addition to its Singularity® financial quantum computing solution, delivering a higher accuracy in fair price calculations for financial institutions over current classical computing methods.
