An intermediate layer containing a few atoms is serving to enhance the transfer of spin currents from one material to the next. Thus far, this process faced substantial losses.
In the sun’s neighborhood of the Milky Way Galaxy is a fairly bright star. Astronomers have successfully recognized the broadest variety of elements in this star that lies beyond the solar system for the first time.
To synchronize their actions, different technologies, networks, and institutions benefit from or need precise time keeping. Existing practices of time synchronization have various flaws, which a new suggested technique aims to overcome.
Aliro Quantum, the first pureplay quantum networking company, today announced that it has been named a 2022 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.
A team of researchers led by Dr Youfen Wang and Professor Ali Luo from the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC) found 734 ultracool dwarfs, which are candidates for brown dwarfs, using LAMOST DR7 low-resolution spectral data.
Researchers headed by Dr Xinping Zhou of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Yunnan Observatories and associated partners have discovered solid evidence of coronal waves caused by flares.
Researchers at the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research utilized computer modeling to explain how a hypothesized form of supernova would develop over thousands of years, providing researchers a means to look for examples of “D6” supernovae.
By slanting the appropriate material at the appropriate angle, scientists from Cornell University were able to discover a way to switch the magnetization in a ferromagnet’s thin layers—an approach that could ultimately result in the creation of magnetic memory devices with high energy efficiency.
At the European XFEL in Hamburg, investigators were able to produce polarized X-rays with exceptional purity.
The molecules of life, DNA, replicate with astounding precision, yet this process is not immune to mistakes and can lead to mutations. Using sophisticated computer modelling, a team of physicists and chemists at the University of Surrey have shown that such errors in copying can arise due to the strange rules of the quantum world.
Quantum computers have been improving rapidly over the past several years, but they still exhibit error rates far higher than conventional computers. This limits their usefulness. To move quantum computing forward, researchers must develop methods to mitigate errors. The better the error mitigation, the more operations can be performed on quantum computers.
Silicon nanoparticles can become trapped within the vortices that develop inside superfluid helium, according to researchers from Osaka University’s Graduate School of Engineering Science.
A fast spinning dead star known as a pulsar attacks its orbiting partner with radiation, gradually evaporating it in black widow star systems.
You are no doubt viewing this article on a digital device whose basic unit of information is the bit, either 0 or 1.
The fundamental building blocks of a quantum computer are quantum bits, or qubits. Some of the most common examples of qubits are based on the different energy states of single electrons.
