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...

New State of Matter Predicted By MIPT-based Researcher
2014-06-18 03:34:00

Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology A researcher with the Department of Electrodynamics of Complex Systems and Nanophotonics, Alexander Rozhkov, has presented theoretical calculations which indicate the possible existence of fermionic matter in a previously unknown state – in the form ofaone-dimensional liquid, which cannot be described within the framework of existing models. Details are contained in Rozhkov’s article in the journal Physical Review Letters, and are also...

Water Caged In Buckyballs Provides Insight Into Spin Isomers
2014-05-21 03:14:35

By Jason Bardi, American Institute of Physics In a new paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics, produced by AIP Publishing, a research team in the United Kingdom and the United States describes how water molecules "caged" in fullerene spheres ("buckyballs") are providing a deeper insight into spin isomers -- varieties of a molecule that differ in their nuclear spin. The results of this work may one day help enhance the analytical and diagnostic power of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)...

Work on "Spin Isomer Conversion," which May Enhance Laboratory Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) WASHINGTON, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a new paper in The Journal of Chemical Physics, produced by AIP Publishing, a research team in the United Kingdom and the United States describes how water molecules "caged" in fullerene spheres ("buckyballs") are providing a deeper insight into spin isomers -- varieties of a molecule that...

Diamonds Help Speed Up Spintronics

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from Ohio State University have demonstrated for the first time that information can flow through a diamond wire. Scientists are working to develop “spintronics” in order to make computers simultaneously faster and more powerful. Spin could be used to help transmit data in computer circuits, and the latest research shows just how viable of an option diamonds could be. The team wrote in the journal Nature...

University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Research finds a new way to control topological insulators Research into a recently discovered class of materials shows they have the necessary characteristics to develop ultra-energy efficient electronics. Topological insulators (TI) are three-dimensional materials that conduct electricity on their surfaces, while the interior insulates. Their surfaces are particularly unique because the motion of the electrons is "protected" by symmetry, meaning...

Researchers Demonstrate New Principle For Magnetic Recording

Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz The research group of Professor Jairo Sinova at the Institute of Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), in collaboration with researchers from Prague, Cambridge, and Nottingham, have predicted and discovered a new physical phenomenon that allows to manipulate the state of a magnet by electric signals. Current technologies for writing, storing, and reading information are either charge-based or spin-based. Semiconductor flash or random...

Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster. The limits of miniaturization are those set by nature: Materials are composed by specific units, the atoms, that cannot be further divided. The question arising is: Can we still codify information at the atomic scale? And the answer is yes, we can! but one needs to manipulate a property of the atoms, individually, and keep them in that state there for sufficiently long time to...

Single-atom Bit Forms Smallest Memory In The World
2013-11-18 12:09:44

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers One atom equals one bit: According to this design principle, we would like to construct magnetic data memories in the future. Presently, a compound of several million atoms is needed to stabilize a magnetic bit in a way that hard disk data are secure for several years. However, researchers from KIT have just made a big step towards a single-atom...

A gyroscope uses the principles of conservation and angular momentum to measure and maintain orientation. The mechanical gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. The gyroscope's high rate of spin allows for large angular momentum which makes the orientation changes much more responsive to a given external torque. There is also the electronic, microchip-packaged MEMS gyroscope, solid state ring laser and fiber optic gyroscope, as well as the extremely...

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.'
