Quantum oscillator responds to pressure

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (2 years ago)

In the future, superconducting quantum bits might serve as components of high-performance computers. Today, superconducting quantum bits are already helping scientists better understand the structure of solids, researchers report. Read Post

New paths into the world of quasiparticles

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (last month)

Quasiparticles can be used to explain physical phenomena in solid bodies even though they are not actual physical particles. Physicists have now realized quasiparticles in a quantum system and observed quantum mechanical entanglemen... Read Post

A bridge to the quantum world: Dirac electrons found in unique material

Academics / General Science : Science Codex (2 years ago)

ANN ARBOR—In a discovery that helps clear a new path toward quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have found elusive Dirac electrons in a superconducting material. Quantum computers use atoms themselves to perform pro... Read Post
