Breakthrough in coordinating electrons advances goal of quantum computing An international team of researchers including scientists at Princeton University have achieved a 100-fold increase in the ability to maintain control the spins of electrons in a solid material, a key step in the development of ultrafast quantum computers. Until recently, the best attempts at such control lasted for only a fraction of a second. But researchers Stephen Lyon and Alexei Tyryshkin have found a way to...
By Karen Jonas POMONA - Residents of drought-prone Southern California know that water conservation is important, and some different techniques to recycle and conserve water were discussed at a workshop Sunday at Cal Poly Pomona. Southern California has about 15 million residents living in a region that is considered a coastal desert, according to Stephen Lyon, who led a workshop that briefly discussed traditional water recycling, which uses chemicals to purify water. But his main...
