The nucleus of lead-208 is fascinating. With 126 neutrons and 82 protons, it is neutron-rich. Its structure is one of its more intriguing features; protons and neutrons coexist at its center, while a diffuse shell made primarily of neutrons surrounds the periphery. It is known as the neutron “skin” by scientists.
Thanks to a camera developed and constructed at the University of Sheffield, astronomers have resolved the controversy around the nature of a unique kind of stellar explosion.
Working laser-powered quantum computers will need a system that can accurately and reliably count and distinguish 50 or more photons every few nanoseconds.
NYU Tandon School of Engineering is poised to become one of an extremely select group of American universities offering an undergraduate program in quantum technology, situating it at the forefront of a fast-growing field in which high employer demand significantly outpaces available talent.
The common factor that everyone knows about black holes is that entirely everything nearby gets sucked into them.
A new study employing data from the International Space Station’s CALorimetric Electron Telescope (CALET) instrument has discovered evidence for nearby, young sources of cosmic ray electrons, which will lead to a better understanding of how the galaxy functions as a whole.
The vacuum is imagined to be completely empty. However, it is filled with an energetic flickering: quantum fluctuations.
IQM Quantum Computers today announced a collaboration with NVIDIA to advance future hybrid quantum applications through NVIDIA CUDA Quantum.
The ARRAKIHS consortium, of which EPFL is the science lead, has just completed the project’s mission definition review, a critical first step toward full completion of mission planning.
At the core of every magnetic material lies a realm where electrons, guided by the principles of quantum mechanics, engage in an invisible dance.
By monitoring the behavior of tiny magnetic vortices, RIKEN researchers have taken a step closer to developing low-energy devices based on spintronics.
Scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory used their expertise in quantum biology, artificial intelligence and bioengineering to improve how CRISPR Cas9 genome editing tools work on organisms like microbes that can be modified to produce renewable fuels and chemicals.
The most distant barred spiral galaxy that resembles the Milky Way that has been spotted to date has been found by an international team, led by astronomer Alexander de la Vega of the University of California, Riverside, using the James Webb Space Telescope.
Researchers have determined the amount of oxygen present in the early universe by utilizing recently acquired data from the James Webb Space Telescope.
Quantum materials hold the key to a future of lightning-speed, energy-efficient information systems. The problem with tapping their transformative potential is that, in solids, the vast number of atoms often drowns out the exotic quantum properties electrons carry.
