A groundbreaking new device from the National Physical Laboratory could help to usher in the long-awaited era of quantum computers
A clock accurate to within a tenth of a second over 14 billion years – the age of the universe – is the goal of research being reported this week by scientists from three different institutions.
Atomic antennae transmit quantum information across a microchip.
New technique has potential to simplify future information processing.
Despite a steady improvement in the speed of conventional computers during the last few decades, certain types of problems remain computationally difficult to solve.
The next generation of Mars rovers could have smaller, cheaper, more robust and more sensitive life-detecting instruments, thanks to a new invention by scientists at the US Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built and tested a device for trapping electrically charged atoms (ions) that potentially could process dozens of ions at once with the most versatile control of any trap demonstrated to date.
Miniature devices for trapping ions (electrically charged atoms) are common components in atomic clocks and quantum computing research.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a new ion trap that enables ions to go through an intersection while keeping their cool.
