For future chips, smaller must also be better

Two teams of researchers from China and France report success in making and testing tiny high-frequency capacitors made from a complex manmade mineral: barium strontium titanate (BST). By introducing an ultrathin (1.2 nanometer) titanium oxide seed layer, the researchers made thin BST films that exhibited excellent microwave properties up to 40 GHz.

Quantum computing research edges toward practicality

An important step - one that is essential to the ultimate construction of a quantum computer - was taken for the first time by physicists at UC Santa Barbara. The research involves the entanglement of three quantum bits of information, or qubits. Before now, entanglement research in the solid state has only been developed with two qubits.
