Dramatic simplification paves the way for building a quantum computer

Dr Xiao-Qi Zhou and colleagues at the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics and the University of Queensland, Australia, have shown that controlled operations - ones that are implemented on the condition that a "control bit" is in the state 1 - can be dramatically simplified compared to the standard approach.

The art of magnetic writing

The process of writing information on tiny magnetic bits one by one, as fast as possible, and with little energy consumption, represents one of the biggest hurdles in this field. of magnetic computer storage. A team of scientists have discovered a new method to write magnetic data that fulfils all of these requirements.

Artificial nanoparticles influence the heart rate

Using a so-called Langendorff heart - an isolated rodent heart flushed with a nutrient solution in place of blood - scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen and the TU Muenchen were for the first time able to show that nanoparticles have a clearly measurable effect on the heart.

Manipulating light at will

The researchers say the results of their latest proof-of-concept experiments could lead to the replacement of electrical components with those based on optical technologies. Light-based devices would enable faster and more efficient transmission of information, much in the same way that replacing wires with optical fibers revolutionized the telecommunications industry.
