Australian Engineers Create Functional Quantum Bit Based On The Nucleus Of A Single Atom In Silicon
2013-04-18 10:48:04

University of New South Wales A team of Australian engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has demonstrated a quantum bit based on the nucleus of a single atom in silicon, promising dramatic improvements for data processing in ultra-powerful quantum computers of the future. Quantum bits, or qubits, are the building blocks of quantum computers, which will offer enormous advantages for searching expansive databases, cracking modern encryption, and modelling atomic-scale...

New Approach To Chemical Reduction Using Catalyst In A Teacup
2013-03-25 09:38:01

University of New South Wales Taking their inspiration from Nature, scientists at the University of New South Wales have developed a new method for carrying out chemical reduction — an industrial process used to produce fuels and chemicals that are vital for modern society. Their catalyst-based approach has the big advantages that it uses cheap, replenishable reagents and it works well at room temperature and in air — so much so, it can even be carried out safely in a...

In a world-first, researchers from the Australian Centre for Nanomedicine at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney have developed a nanoparticle that could improve the effectiveness of chemotherapy for neuroblastoma by a factor of five. Neuroblastoma is an aggressive childhood cancer that often leaves survivors with lingering health problems due to the high doses of chemotherapy drugs required for treatment. Anything that can potentially reduce these doses is considered an...

The open source software movement can serve as a model for freeing up access to, and connecting up, clinical trial data Australian researchers are calling for the open sharing of clinical trial data in the medical research community, saying it would be instrumental in eliminating bottlenecks and duplication, and lead to faster and more trustworthy evidence for many of our most pressing health problems. Moreover, hackers should be role models for freeing up access to the "source code" of...

A new bio-inspired approach to synthesizing polymers will offer unprecedented control over the final polymer structure and yield advances in nanomedicine, researchers say. In a study published last week in the prestigious journal Nature Chemistry, researchers from the University of New South Wales in Sydney and the University of Warwick in the UK have outline a new method of polymer synthesis based on a combination of segregation and templating — a pair of natural approaches that...

Youngest of their kind ever found in mainland East Asia Fossils from two caves in south-west China have revealed a previously unknown Stone Age people and give a rare glimpse of a recent stage of human evolution with startling implications for the early peopling of Asia. The fossils are of a people with a highly unusual mix of archaic and modern anatomical features and are the youngest of their kind ever found in mainland East Asia. Dated to just 14,500 to 11,500 years old, these...
