The Quantum Experiment that Broke Reality

Posted by in category: quantum physics

Nice history.

(via PBS Space Time) The double slit experiment radically changed the way we understand reality. Find out what the ramifications of this experiment were and how we can use it to better comprehend our universe.

Scientia Professor Michelle Yvonne Simmons

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Professor Michelle Simmons of the Univ. of Sydney is an early pioneer of QC and will go down in history as the 1st Mother of Quantum Computing and a person that all (women and men) can look up to and be a true role model for many in tech and science. I hope to continue to make young girls and women everywhere to learn about her and hopefully they (like me) will consider her a role model to follow.

Dirty to drinkable: Novel hybrid nanomaterials quickly transform water

Posted by in categories: engineering, nanotechnology

Now, a team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis has found a way to use graphene oxide sheets to transform dirty water into drinking water, and it could be a global game-changer.

“We hope that for countries where there is ample sunlight, such as India, you’ll be able to take some dirty water, evaporate it using our material, and collect fresh water,” said Srikanth Singamaneni, associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the School of Engineering & Applied Science.

The new approach combines bacteria-produced cellulose and graphene oxide to form a bi-layered biofoam. A paper detailing the research is available online in Advanced Materials.

A new Type of Quantum Bit

Posted by in categories: materials, quantum physics

In approaches using conventional semiconductor materials, scientists typically created qubits in the form of individual electrons. However, this caused dephesing, and the information carriers were difficult to program and read. Now, researchers from the University of Basel, Ruhr University Bochum, and the Universite de Lyon have overcome this problem by using holes — instead of electrons — to create qubits.

Vortex laser offers hope for Moore’s Law

Posted by in category: computing

Like a whirlpool, a new light-based communication tool carries data in a swift, circular motion.

Described in a study published today (July 28, 2016) by the journal Science, the optics advancement could become a central component of next generation computers designed to handle society’s growing demand for information sharing.

It may also be a salve to those fretting over the predicted end of Moore’s Law, the idea that researchers will find new ways to continue making computers smaller, faster and cheaper.
