The U.S. Department of Energy announced $73 million in funding to advance quantum information science research to help scientists better understand the physical world and harness nature to benefit people and society.
Electrons in metals try to behave like obedient motorists, but they end up more like bumper cars.
Quantum materials display exotic behaviors due to the effects of quantum mechanics, or how matter acts on the very small scale of atoms and subatomic particles.
A new analysis of collisions of gold ions shows tantalizing signs of a "critical point," a change in the way one form of matter changes into another.
Cosmic rays can be described as charged subnuclear particles traveling close to the speed of light. These particles constantly rain down on the Earth and are relativistic, as proposed by Albert Einstein’s special relativity. They manage to produce a magnetic field that regulates the way they move inside the galaxy.
Protons populate the nucleus of every atom in the universe. Inside the nucleus, they cling tightly to neighboring protons and neutrons.
Scientists studying particle collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider—a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facility for nuclear physics research at DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory—have produced definitive evidence for two physics phenomena predicted more than 80 years ago.
Scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder have designed one of the most accurate stopwatches. Unlike the ones to record timings in the Olympics, this stopwatch is used for counting single photons, or the tiny packets of energy that form light.
Scientists studying two different configurations of bilayer graphene-;the two-dimensional (2-D), atom-thin form of carbon-;have detected electronic and optical interlayer resonances.
An increase in both available computational power and the number of appropriate quantum engines, or code, has led to the widespread use of density-functional theory (DFT) to compute system properties at the atomic level in both academia and industry. It remains, nevertheless, a complicated task.
Researchers from National Taiwan Normal University and Kyushu University have come up with a new device that requires only a single semiconductor called perovskite to concurrently store and visually transmit data.
For the first time, astronomers have successfully determined the electron and proton components of cosmic rays in a supernova remnant. Novel imaging analysis of radio, X-ray, and gamma-ray radiation showed that at least 70% of the very-high-energy gamma rays discharged from cosmic rays are caused by relativistic protons.
The quantum computing market is projected to reach $65 billion by 2030, a hot topic for investors and scientists alike because of its potential to solve incomprehensibly complex problems.
Tomorrow's quantum sensors, computers and networks will share, process and secure exponentially more information -; starting with the scientific data that will make this wave of the future possible.
Scientists from the Centre for Astrophysics characterized wandering black holes using the ROMULUS simulations and identified that in the early universe, these black holes contained most of the mass.
