William M. Morse of the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and Bradley Lee Roberts of Boston University will receive the American Physical Society's 2023 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics for their leadership of the muon g-2 experiment at Brookhaven Lab and its role in sparking a worldwide search for new physics.
Plasma instabilities pose a significant problem for fusion reactors like ITER. A viable solution has recently been discovered by a research team centered on the nuclear fusion department at TU Wien.
Massive neutron stars colliding in space are thought to be able to create precious metals such as gold and platinum. The properties of these stars are still an enigma, but the answer may lie beneath the skin of one of the smallest building blocks on Earth – an atomic nucleus of lead.
The latest ground-breaking research and projects from across the Quantum landscape are to be shared at the 2022 National Quantum Technologies Programme (NQTP) Showcase on 11 November at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster, London.
Physicists at EPFL have come up with a method to solve the persistent issue of electron self-interaction when analyzing polarons—quasiparticles fashioned by the interactions of electron-phonon in materials.
Novel devices that can be rapidly swapped between two quantum states are needed to provide scalability in quantum computers, sensors, and networks.
Recently, an all-inclusive high-time resolution optical monitoring of BL Lacertae (BL Lac)—a distant active galaxy—was done by a group of 86 scientists from 13 countries.
The Bureau of Meteorology's Australian Space Weather Forecasting Centre was formally opened by the Minister for Environment and Water in Adelaide today.
Quantum materials behave in surprising ways because of quantum physics. For example, they can be superconductors, which can allow electricity to flow with no resistance.
The third Workshop on Quantum Repeaters and Networks, locally co-organized by the Q-NEXT quantum research center and the Chicago Quantum Exchange, provides a forum for advancing next-generation information technologies.
The proton is a composite particle composed of central building blocks of gluons and quarks. These mechanisms and their interactions establish the structure of the proton, including its electrical currents and charges.
Two milliseconds – or two thousandths of a second – is an extraordinarily long time in the world of quantum computing.
LabOne Q is the new software framework to accelerate progress in quantum computing.
If you've ever tried to carry on a conversation in a noisy room, you'll be able to relate to the scientists and engineers trying to "hear" the signals from experimental quantum computing devices called qubits.
A pioneering algorithm has been put into operation at the Large Hadron Collider by a group of scientists from Staffordshire University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and CERN.
