A major hurdle in the ambitious quest to design and construct a radically new kind of quantum computer has been finding a way to manipulate the single electrons that very likely will constitute the new machines' processing components or "qubits." Princeton University's Jason Petta has discovered how to do just that -- demonstrating a method that alters the properties of a lone electron without disturbing the trillions of electrons in its immediate surroundings. The feat is essential to the...

Hidden symmetry observed for the first time in solid state matter Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fr Materialien und Energie (HZB), in cooperation with colleagues from Oxford and Bristol Universities, as well as the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, have for the first time observed a nanoscale symmetry hidden in solid state matter. They have measured the signatures of a symmetry showing the same attributes as the golden ratio famous from art and architecture. The research team...

Quantum physicists simulate Dirac equation, 1 of the cornerstones in physics Researchers of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Innsbruck, Austria, used a calcium ion to simulate a relativistic quantum particle, demonstrating a phenomenon that has not been directly observable so far: the Zitterbewegung. They have published their findings in the current issue of the journal Nature. In the 1920s quantum mechanics was already established and in 1928 the British...

Physicists at UC Santa Barbara have made an important advance in electrically controlling quantum states of electrons, a step that could help in the development of quantum computing. The work is published online today on the Science Express Web site. The researchers have demonstrated the ability to electrically manipulate, at gigahertz rates, the quantum states of electrons trapped on individual defects in diamond crystals. This could aid in the development of quantum computers that could use...

A multidisciplinary team of UC researchers is the first to find an innovative and novel way to control an electron's spin orientation using purely electrical means. Their findings were recently published in the prestigious, high-profile journal "Nature Nanotechnology," in an article titled "All-Electric Quantum Point Contact Spin-Polarizer." For decades, the transistors inside radios, televisions and other everyday electronic items have transmitted data by controlling the movement of the...

Chaotic behavior is the rule, not the exception, in the world we experience through our senses, the world governed by the laws of classical physics. Even tiny, easily overlooked events can completely change the behavior of a complex system, to the point where there is no apparent order to most natural systems we deal with in everyday life. The weather is one familiar case, but other well-studied examples can be found in chemical reactions, population dynamics, neural networks and even the...

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...
