Storing a quantum movie in an atomic gas

The sequence of images that constitute Hollywood movies can be stored handily on solid-state media such as magnetic tape or compact diskettes. At the Joint Quantum Institute images can be stored in something as insubstantial as a gas of rubidium atoms. No one expects a vapor to compete with a solid in terms of density of storage.

Engineering researcher creating new nanotechnology tools to study Parkinson's disease

Some human cells forget to empty their trash bins, and when the garbage piles up, it can lead to Parkinson's disease and other genetic and age-related disorders. Scientists don't yet understand why this happens, and Rice University engineering researcher Laura Segatori is hoping to change that, thanks to a prestigious five-year CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation.
