militarySuper-precise Quantum navigation using lasers and super cold atoms

0
The UK’s first quantum accelerometer for navigation has been demonstrated by a team from Imperial College London and M Squared. Losing GPS (global positioning satellites) service for one day would cost the UK £1 billion. Losing GPS is also a …

futureWind tunnel and lasers for US hypersonic development

0
Sandia National Laboratories has a hypersonic wind tunnel and advanced laser diagnostic technology to help develop hypersonic technology. Sandia has an annual budget of over $3 billion. U.S. development of autonomous hypersonic missiles and drones are a top defense priority. …

astronomyMany anomalies of interstellar Oumuamua are explained if it was an alien solar sail

0
Telescopes could not get an image of the interstellar asteroid Oumuamua. Recent research shows that the asteroid had an acceleration. It deviated from a Keplerian orbit. It increased speed and changed direction. The deviation was with super-high statistical significance (30 …

nuclearRace for Antimatter gravitational experiment this month

0
The ALPHA collaboration is an international team of researchers who study antihydrogen. They have built a detector that will determine the mass and gravitational effects on antimatter hydrogen. They will produce very precise measurements of physical characteristics and behavior of …

medicineHyperpolarized quantum MRI increases sensitivity 100,000 times

0
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) methods have been used widely in past decades as a safe, non-invasive and non-radioactive method of diagnosing CVDs. Current MRI have limited sensitivity and even the most expensive MRI scanners (with the strongest magnets) cannot detect …

energyFlibe Energy has $2.6 million for molten salt nuclear research

0
Kirk Sorensen of Flibe Energy described the central role that fluorination plays in the handling of fission products in molten-salt reactors. New fluorination technology may resolve previous challenges, at the 4th MSR Workshop at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, on October …

physicsQuantum mechanics time travel indicates no grandfather paradox

0
Dr. Seth Lloyd, an MIT professor and self-described “quantum mechanic,” describes the quantum mechanics behind time travel during a guest lecture at the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo. Recorded on Nov. 4, 2010, this is the entire lecture …

ibmIBM proves a quantum computing advantage over classical

0
IBM scientists have mathematically proven that there are certain problems that require only a fixed circuit depth when done on a quantum computer no matter how the number of inputs increase. On a classical computer, these same problems require the …

adiabatic quantum computerFuture of Quantum Computing from Giant and Pioneer in the field

0
Seth Lloyd contributed a lot of the basic science and theory of a lot of Quantum computing. Seth developed the design of adiabatic computing in 2002 which was implemented by D-Wave Systems in 2006 and continues to be a growing …

cameraTime freezing camera at 10 trillion frames per second

0
INRS professor and ultrafast imaging specialist Jinyang Liang and his colleagues, led by Caltech’s Lihong Wang, have developed what they call T-CUP: the world’s fastest camera, capable of capturing ten trillion (10 13) frames per second. This new camera literally …
