Improved stability of electron spins in qubits

Calculation with electron spins in a quantum computer assumes that the spin states last for a sufficient period of time. Physicists have now demonstrated that electron exchange in quantum dots fundamentally limits the stability of this information.

Studying nanoparticles one at a time

Researchers have developed a new way to study nanoparticles one at a time, and have discovered that individual particles that may seem identical in fact can have very different properties. The results may prove to be important when developing new materials or applications such as hydrogen sensors for fuel cell cars.

Shedding light on the era of Dark silicon

We will soon live in an era where perhaps more than 80 per cent of computer processors' transistors must be powered off and 'remain dark' at any time to prevent the chip from overheating. Researchers are racing against time to find smart solutions to the rapidly advancing era of 'dark silicon'.

Carbon nanotubes open new path toward quantum information technologies

The ability to generate single photons on demand holds the key to realization of such a communication scheme. By demonstrating that incorporation of pristine single-walled carbon nanotubes into a silicon dioxide matrix could lead to creation of solitary oxygen dopant state capable of fluctuation-free, room-temperature single photon emission, researchers revealed a new path toward on-demand single photon generation.
