Florian Aigner, Vienna University of Technology Coupling atomic spins in diamonds to microwave resonators could lead to new quantum technologies. Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have now managed to dramatically prolong the time these systems can store information. The electronics we use for our computers only knows two different states: zero or one. Quantum systems on the other hand can be in different states at once, they can store a superposition of...

National Science Foundation University of Michigan computer scientist reviews frontier technologies to determine fundamental limits of computer scaling From their origins in the 1940s as sequestered, room-sized machines designed for military and scientific use, computers have made a rapid march into the mainstream, radically transforming industry, commerce, entertainment and governance while shrinking to become ubiquitous handheld portals to the world. This progress has been driven...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The difficulty in understanding the field of quantum computing just got a little easier, but only slightly. New research from the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing has confirmed, at least theoretically, that the concept of contextuality is a necessary resource required for achieving the advantages of quantum computation. Contextuality is regarded as one of the weirder aspects of quantum theory and is a...

University of Innsbruck "When water boils, its molecules are released as vapor. We call this change of the physical state of matter a phase transition," explains Sebastian Diehl from the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Innsbruck. Together with his colleagues from the Institute for Experimental Physics and the theorist Markus Mueller from the Complutense University of Madrid, he studied the transition between two quantum mechanical orders in a way never before...

We Americans are a peculiar bunch. We comprise only 5 percent of the world's population, yet we consume 20 percent of its oil. Add to that the frivolous consumption of cheap, imported junk from China and elsewhere, and you have anthropocentric excess on an unprecedented scale. As our materialism becomes the envy of undeveloped countries (at the worst possible time in history), we are setting a poor example for the rest of the world to follow. Theodore Roosevelt said, "The conservation of...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
