diamondDemo of two-qubit fault-tolerant universal holonomic quantum gates could enable faster quantum computers

Japases researchers have demonstrated holonomic quantum gates under zero-magnetic field at room temperature, which will enable the realization of fast and fault-tolerant universal quantum computers. A quantum computer is a powerful machine with the potential to solve complex problems much …

diamondSix inch wide diamond disks guide megawatt of microwave heating for nuclear fusion

Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the company Diamond Materials have developed 6 inch wide diamond disks for window units to heat the plasma in fusion reactors. Gyrotrons are microwave oscillators generating a temperature of up to 150 …

diamondSynthetic diamond will enable quantum networks

Princeton University researchers are using synthetic diamonds to help create a quantum communication network. Quantum information networks could be extremely secure and could also allow new quantum computers to work together to solve currently unsolvable problems. The main problem has …

businessSynthetic diamonds are in jewelry stores for about 40% lower cost

Ada Diamonds offers only laboratory-grown diamonds in our fine jewelry. Ada’s sustainably cultured diamonds have the exact same crystal structure, chemical composition, optical properties, and physical properties as mined diamond. Ada’s gemstones are graded on the exact same criteria as …

africaGem Diamond finds 910 carat diamond

Gem Diamonds has found a 910-carat stone, about the size of two golf balls, at its Letseng mine in southern Africa. D color Type IIa diamond from the Letšeng mine in Lesotho, the highest dollar per carat kimberlite diamond mine …

diamondTwo-Layer Graphene becomes a Diamond-Hard Material on Impact which could make super armor

Scientists at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at the Graduate Center, CUNY, worked to theorize and test how two layers of graphene — each one-atom thick — could be made to transform into a diamond-like material upon impact at …

astronomyStanford lab makes nanodiamond rain but on Uranus and Neptune diamonds would be millions of carats

Stanford Linear Accelerator Lab (SLAC) scientists were able to observe “diamond rain” for the first time as it formed in high-pressure conditions. Extremely high pressure squeezes hydrogen and carbon found in the interior of these planets to form solid diamonds …

diamondMass Producible Quantum Computers

A team of researchers from MIT, Harvard University, and Sandia National Laboratories reports a new technique for creating targeted defects in diamond materials, which is simpler and more precise than its predecessors and could benefit diamond-based quantum computing devices. Quantum …

diamondRussia and Venezuela are running out of cash

Russia’s reserve fund could be depleted in mid-2017, perhaps a few months later,” said Ondrej Schneider, chief economist at the Institute of International Finance. Russia may start building up its Reserve Fund in the second half of 2017, Finance Minister …

bootstrapping nanotechnologyImproved Artificial Intelligence will allow pilots to control drone wingmen

F-35s, F-22s and other fighter jets will soon use improved “artificial intelligence” to control nearby drone “wingmen” able to carry weapons, test enemy air defenses or perform intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance missions in high risk areas, senior Air Force officials …
