Innovative application of metamaterials to improve radars (12/21/2014)

At the International Radar Conference held in Lille the researchers of the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre received an award for their work 'Blind Spot Mitigation in Phased Array Antenna using Metamaterials'. The most innovative aspect of the research was the application of a smart structure based on metamaterials to improve the performance of radar antennae. ...> Full Article


45-year physics mystery shows a path to quantum transistors (12/20/2014)

An odd, iridescent material that's puzzled physicists for decades turns out to be an exotic state of matter that could open a new path to quantum computers and other next-generation electronics. ...> Full Article


World record for compact particle accelerator (12/19/2014)

World record for compact particle acceleratorUsing one of the most powerful lasers in the world, Berkeley Lab researchers have accelerated subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded. They used an emerging class of compact particle accelerator that physicists believe can shrink traditional, miles-long accelerators to machines that can fit on a table. ...> Full Article


Unusual electronic state found in new class of unconventional superconductors (12/18/2014)

Unusual electronic state found in new class of unconventional superconductorsScientists have discovered an unusual form of electronic order in a new family of unconventional superconductors, giving scientists a new group of materials to explore to understand ability to carry current with no energy loss. ...> Full Article


Electron pairs on demand (12/17/2014)

Electron pairs on demandPhysicists from Leibniz University Hannover and from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt have demonstrated for the first time the on-demand emission of electron pairs from a semiconductor quantum dot and verified their subsequent splitting into two separate conductors. Their results -- which could be important for quantum computers and quantum cryptography -- have been published in the current online issue of 'Nature Nanotechnology.' ...> Full Article


Penn research shows way to design 'digital' metamaterials (12/16/2014)

Penn research shows way to design 'digital' metamaterialsFiguring out the necessary composition and internal structure to create the unusual properties of metamaterials is a challenge but new Penn research, borrowing concepts from binary computing, presents a way of simplifying things. ...> Full Article


Quantum leap as Clark unveils UK's network of Quantum Technology Hubs (12/15/2014)

A new £120 million national network of Quantum Technology Hubs, that will explore the properties of quantum mechanics and how they can be harnessed for use in technology, has been unveiled today at the University of Birmingham. The new network will involve 17 universities and 132 companies and will be funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council from the £270 million investment in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme announced by the Chancellor, George Osborne in his Autumn Statement of 2013. ...> Full Article


Scanning tunneling microscopy: Computer simulations sharpen insights into molecules (12/14/2014)

Scanning tunneling microscopy: Computer simulations sharpen insights into moleculesThe resolution of scanning tunneling microscopes can be improved dramatically by attaching small molecules or atoms to their tip. The resulting images were the first to show the geometric structure of molecules and have generated a lot of interest among scientists over the last few years. Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague have now used computer simulations to gain deeper insights into these new imaging techniques. ...> Full Article


Characteristics of a universal simulator (12/14/2014)

According to many scientists, quantum computers will have great importance in the future but, despite all efforts, research in this field is still in its infancy. One of the difficulties is understanding what criteria a quantum system should meet to be able to solve problems that are impossible for conventional computers. An international research team headed by SISSA has just published a study that establishes a basic characteristic that universal quantum simulators should possess. ...> Full Article


Particles, waves and ants (12/13/2014)

Particles, waves and antsParticles or waves traveling through disordered media are scattered at small impurities. Surprisingly, the density of these impurities does not affect the overall dwell time the particle -- or wave -- spends inside the medium. This remarkable finding applies not only to particles and waves, but also to crawling ants or drunken sailors hitting streetlamps. ...> Full Article


The mysterious 'action at a distance' between liquid containers (12/12/2014)

The mysterious 'action at a distance' between liquid containersFor several years, it has been known that superfluid helium housed in reservoirs located next to each other acts collectively, even when the channels connecting the reservoirs are too narrow and too long to allow for substantial flow. A new theoretical model reveals that the phenomenon of mysterious communication 'at a distance' between fluid reservoirs is much more common than previously thought. ...> Full Article


Van der Waals force re-measured (12/11/2014)

Van der Waals force re-measuredVan der Waals forces act like a sort of quantum glue on all types of matter. Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich experimentally determined for the first time all of the key details of how strongly the single molecules bind to a surface. They demonstrated that the forces do not just increase with molecular size, but that they even grow disproportionately fast. Their findings could help to improve simulation methods for chemistry, physics, biology, and materials science. ...> Full Article


Global quantum communications -- no longer the stuff of fiction? (12/10/2014)

Global quantum communications -- no longer the stuff of fiction?Neither quantum computers nor quantum cryptography will become prevalent technologies without memory systems able to manipulate quantum information easily and effectively. The Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw has recently made inroads into popularizing quantum information technologies by creating an atomic memory with outstanding parameters and an extremely simple construction. ...> Full Article

Cooling with the coldest matter in the world (12/8/2014)

Cooling with the coldest matter in the worldPhysicists at the University of Basel have developed a new cooling technique for mechanical quantum systems. Using an ultracold atomic gas, the vibrations of a membrane were cooled down to less than 1 degree above absolute zero. This technique may enable novel studies of quantum physics and precision measurement devices, as the researchers report in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. ...> Full Article
