Quantum Memory: 2D Material Identified that Can Store Quantum Information at Room Heat

In collaboration with colleagues at UT Sydney, Australia, researchers from the Cavendish Laboratory have discovered a two-dimensional material called hexagonal boron nitride. It emits single photons at room temperature from atomic-scale defects. Researchers discovered that light from isolated defects could provide information about a quantum property, which could be used to store quantum information. This […]

Amazing X-Ray Lens Gives a Unique Look into the Nanoworld

For sharp images in photography or optical microscopes, achromatic lenses are crucial. Achromatic lenses ensure that all colors, i.e., ensure that different colors – i.e., the light of different wavelengths – have the same focal point. Achromatic lenses are not available for X-rays. Therefore, high-resolution X-ray microscopy is only possible with monochromatic. This means that […]

Robot-Aided Assembly could speed up the pace of discovery for amazing new technologies.

Similar challenges face researchers when trying to invent new technology. It all starts with the discovery of unusual materials at the atomic level. This is how you can make a flexible screen or a solar panel. However, 2D materials are still a promising area for future electronics. Scientists must hand-make every new material manually before […]

Key Elements for Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computation with Silicon Spin Qubits

The race is on to create large-scale quantum computers capable of outperforming classical computers in certain areas. Many factors have hampered these efforts, including the decoherence problem and noise generated in the qubits. The problem is worse as the number of qubits increases, which can make scaling up difficult. It is necessary to have a […]

Molecular Engineers Show How to Make “Computer” From Liquid Crystals

UChicago’s breakthrough could open the door to robotics and computing with soft materials. Researchers from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering showed how to design basic elements for logic operations using a type of material called a Liquid Crystal. This is the first step toward a new way of computing. Although the […]

You Can Make Massive, Realistic 3D Holographics With Stackable “Holobricks”.

Researchers have created a new way to display holographic images that are highly realistic using ‘holo bricks.’ These can be stacked together to create large-scale holograms. Researchers from Disney Research and the University of Cambridge developed a holobrick proof of concept, which allows holograms to be tiled together to create a large seamless 3D image. […]

Advanced 3D Bioprinting Techniques: One Layer at A Time to Build a Heart

Mark Skylar Scott and his Stanford bioengineers are using advanced 3D printing technologies to transform a paste of living cells into organs. Engineers find the human heart more attractive than any other human organ. Its chambers pump in perfect harmony; its materials can be pliable and contract on demand; its shape and motion are precisely […]

Quantum Computer Crunch Chemistry Equations with a New Algorithm

Although quantum computers are becoming more powerful, there are few practical ways to make the most of this extra computing power. Researchers are developing algorithms to make the transition from traditional to quantum computers easier. A new study published in Nature reveals an algorithm to reduce statistical errors or noise caused by quantum bits (or […]

M.I.T.’s clever way to clean solar panels without water

A new cleaning technique could be used to remove dirt from solar panels in areas with limited water supply. By 2030, solar power will account for 10 percent of the world’s power generation. Most of this power will be generated in areas with abundant sunlight, such as deserts. However, dust accumulation on mirrors or solar […]

The Acoustic Fabric is a New Way to Hear Your Heart’s Sounds

The human ear inspires acoustic fabric that converts audible sounds to electrical signals. Do you have trouble hearing? Turn up your shirt. This is the concept behind a new “acoustic material” that engineers from MIT and colleagues at Rhode Island School of Design have created. The fabric works as a microphone and converts sound into […]
