  1. Sydney United To Build A Quantum Harbour City

    Sydney is fast becoming recognised as the global destination for quantum technology. Research teams at the University of Sydney and UNSW are finding that cooperation alongside competition provide a fertile ground for advancement.

  2. Controlling Quantum Particles One-By-One In An Atomically Thin Device

    Control of the number of quantum particles is an important step towards processing, storing, and communicating quantum information with this emerging technological platform.

  3. Ultrathin And Ultrafast: Scientists Pioneer New Technique For Two-Dimensional Material Analysis

    Using a never-before-seen technique, scientists have found a new way to use some of the world’s most powerful X-rays to uncover how atoms move in a single atomic sheet at ultrafast speeds.

  4. Quantum Physicists Succeed In Controlling Energy Losses And Shifts

    Quantum computers need to preserve quantum information for a long time to be able to crack important problems faster than a normal computer. Energy losses take the state of the qubit from 1 to 0, destroying stored quantum information at the same time.

  5. Researchers Report New Light-Activated Micro Pump

    Even the smallest mechanical pumps have limitations, from the complex microfabrication techniques required to make them to the fact that there are limits on how small they can be. Researchers have announced a potential solution – a laser-driven photoacoustic microfluidic pump, capable of moving fluids in any direction without moving parts or electrical contacts.

  6. Listening To Quantum Radio

    Researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a quantum circuit that enables them to listen to the weakest radio signal allowed by quantum mechanics. This new quantum circuit opens the door to possible future applications in areas such as radio astronomy and medicine (MRI).

  7. New Approach Facilitates Spectroscopy On Individual Molecules

    While spectroscopic measurements are normally averaged over myriad molecules, a new method developed by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) provides precise information about the interaction of individual molecules with their environment.

  8. Don’t Adjust Your Sets – New Research Could Revolutionise Fiber-Optic Communications

    A team of researchers from the University of St Andrews has achieved a breakthrough in the measurement of lasers which could revolutionise the future of fiber-optic communications.

  9. Using Laser ‘Tweezers,’ Scientists Grab And Study Tiny Protein Droplets

    University at Buffalo physicists are using innovative tools to study the properties of a bizarre class of molecules that may play a role in disease: proteins that cluster together to form spherical droplets inside human cells.

  10. When Semiconductors Stick Together, Materials Go Quantum

    A team of researchers led by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has developed a simple method that could turn ordinary semiconducting materials into quantum machines – superthin devices marked by extraordinary electronic behavior.
