A quantum spin on molecular computers

If quantum computers existed, they would revolutionize computing as we know it. Based on fundamental properties of matter, the potential power of these theoretical workhorses would solve problems in a new way, cracking extremely complex spy codes and precisely modeling chemical systems in a snap. Now, researchers have created cleverly designed molecules to get one step closer to this goal.

Daguerreotype exhibit explores nanotechnology's role in preserving local history

In 1839, Louis-Jacques-Mande Daguerre unveiled one of the world's first successful photographic mediums: the daguerreotype. The process transformed the human experience by providing a means to capture light and record people, places, and events. The University of Rochester is leading groundbreaking nanotechnology research that explores the extraordinary qualities of this photographic process.
