Will Light Be the Basis for Quantum Computing?

Using a compact optical platform that exploits the quantum characteristics of light, Professor Roberto Morandotti and his team are one step closer to realizing the first...
Atomic parity violation

Atomic Parity Violation Research Reaches New Milestone

A reflection always reproduces objects as a complete mirror image, rather than just its individual parts or individual parts in a completely different orientation....
quantum behaviour

Just Seven Photons Can Act like Billions

Most substances physicists study are made up of huge numbers of particles – so large that there is essentially no difference between the behavioural...
quantum computers

Light Exchange

The quantum computers of the future will be able to perform computations that cannot be done on today’s computers. These may likely include the...
Tantalum disulfide

Atoms and Electrons Watched at Work

The properties of materials are determined by their atomic structure. If atoms and electrons change their arrangement, the characteristics of a material also change. The complex...
quantum interference

Novel Approach to Coherent Control of a Three-Level Quantum System

For the first time, researchers were able to study quantum interference in a three-level quantum system and thereby control the behavior of individual electron...
quantum phase transitions

Physicists Uncover Why Nanomaterial Loses Superconductivity

The struggle to keep drinks cold during the summer is a lesson in classical phase transitions. To study phase transitions, apply heat to a...
opaque materials

Making Opaque Materials Totally Transparent

Most naturally occurring materials have a disordered atomic structure that interferes with the propagation of both sound and electromagnetic waves. When the waves come...
Microscopic Machines

A New Way to Measure Energy in Microscopic Machines

What drives cells to live and engines to move? It all comes down to a quantity that scientists call “free energy,” essentially the energy...
Quantum Magnets Mimic Light

Seeing the Light?

What is light? It sounds like a simple question, but it is one that has occupied some of the best scientific minds for centuries. Now,...
quantum computing

Rutgers-led Research Could Lead to More Efficient Electronics

A Rutgers-led team of physicists has demonstrated a way to conduct electricity between transistors without energy loss, opening the door to low-power electronics and,...

Almost Instant Magnetization of Matter by Light

The production of devices to store or transmit information is one of the most frequent technological applications of magnetism. An experimental and theoretical study...
Quantum Spin Ice

PSI Researchers Seek Existence of Exotic Quantum Spin Ice

Researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland, Romain Sibille and Nicolas Gauthier, are studying a fascinating sample using neutrons at the Department...
optically-induced superconductivity

Light-Induced Superconductivity Under High Pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science...
quantum materials

The Apparent Inner Calm of Quantum Materials

The transitions between different phases of matter are part of our everyday life: the freezing water thus passes from the liquid state to the...
electronic structure

Free the Electron to Better Trap It

Atoms are formed of electrons around a central core to which they are linked. Electrons can also be torn-ionized-from their nucleus using the powerful electric...

Novel Method for Resolving Spin Texture of Topological Surface States Using...

The magneto-resistance effect is the tendency of a material to change the value of its electrical resistance in an externally-applied magnetic field. It has...
Proton Collider

UChicago Scientists Build Trap to Make Tiny Packages of Light ‘Collide’

The universe is illuminated via photons, the tiny individual particles that make up light, but they don’t interact with each other. To make them...

Self-Assembling, Tunable Interfaces Found in Quantum Materials

A potential revolution in device engineering could be underway, thanks to the discovery of functional electronic interfaces in quantum materials that can self-assemble spontaneously. “This...

Epidemics: the End of Containment Measures?

When an epidemic outbreak – such as those caused by the H1N1, Zika or SARS viruses – takes place, containment measures may seem to...
