Trapping giant Rydberg atoms for faster quantum computers

In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap. Rydberg atoms are highly excited, nearly-ionized giants that can be thousands of times larger than their ground-state counterparts.

Peptides may hold 'missing link' to life

Emory scientists have discovered that simple peptides can organize into bi-layer membranes. The finding suggests a 'missing link' between the pre-biotic Earth's chemical inventory and the organizational scaffolding essential to life.

Quantum dots go with the flow

Researchers have devised a self-adjusting remote-control system that can place a dot 6 nanometers long to within 45 nm of any desired location. That's the equivalent of picking up golf balls around a living room and putting them on a coffee table - automatically, from 100 miles away.
