Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster.
Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers
A simple pendulum has two equilibrium points: hanging in the "down" position and perfectly inverted in the "up" position.
Researchers at JILA have for the first time used an atomic clock as a quantum simulator, mimicking the behavior of a different, more complex quantum system.
From brain to heart to stomach, the bodies of humans and animals generate weak magnetic fields that a supersensitive detector could use to pinpoint illnesses, trace drugs – and maybe even read minds.
An international team of scientists has shed new light on a fundamental area of physics which could have important implications for future electronic devices and the transfer of information at the quantum level.
Ever since their discovery in 1984, the burgeoning area of research looking at quasiperiodic structures has revealed astonishing opportunities in a number of areas of fundamental and applied research, including applications in lasing and sensing.
New research has demonstrated a way to make bismuth electrons and nuclei work together as qubits in a quantum computer.
Researchers successfully managed to increase the graphene conduction electrons' spin-orbit coupling by a factor of 10,000 – enough to allow them to construct a switch that can be controlled via small electric fields.
