nanowireSuperconducting nanowires created that are promising for future quantum computers

0
Dutch researchers have successfully developed nanowires allowing individual electrons to be captured by a ‘quantum dot’ on which superconductivity can take place. These nanowires could make powerful quantum computers. The combination of a quantum dot and superconductivity makes it possible …

physicsClaimed Room Temperature Superconductor awaits independent confirmation

0
The Indian chemists who posted an Arxiv paper that nanostructured silver and gold are room temperature superconductors are well-regarded chemical physicists from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India. The researchers are not sharing their samples or their data. …

0
The Lockheed Compact Reactor was kicked off with huge promises a few years ago and their patent based upon those promises has publicized again. Journalists and publications who do not follow nuclear fusion in detail missed the technical revisions in …

electronicsGraphene superlattices could be used for superconducting transistors

0
Researchers created a “superlattice” of two graphene sheets stacked together — not precisely on top of each other, but rotated ever so slightly, at a “magic angle” of 1.1 degrees. The hexagonal honeycomb pattern is offset slightly, creating a precise …

Russian and UK physicists have developed a superconducting quantum state detectors. The researchers, who come from MIPT, the Institute of Microelectronics and High Purity Materials of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Royal Holloway, University of London The detector consists …

materialsYttrium hydrogen compound should be room temperature superconductor when under extreme pressure

0
The hunt for high temperature superconductivity has been reinvigorated by the experimental discovery that compressed H2S exhibits a Tc of up to 203K at megabar pressures (1Mbar=100GPa). A collaboration between the University of Cambridge and Jilin University has published the …

future33% improvement in superconducting magnets to 32 Tesla and 100+ Tesla magnets are on the horizon

0
The Florida State University-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory has shattered another world record with the testing of a 32-tesla magnet — 33 percent stronger than what had previously been the world’s strongest superconducting magnet used for research and more …

When it comes to entirely new, faster, more powerful computers, Majorana fermions may be the answer. These hypothetical particles can do a better job than conventional quantum bits (qubits) of light or matter. Why? Because of the spooky way Majorana …

artificial intelligenceQuantum computers should see rapid progress to millions of qubits

0
Just a few years ago, the consensus on a timeline to large-scale, reliable quantum computers was 20 years to never. This was in spite of the success that DWave systems had with adiabatic quantum computing systems. “Nobody is saying never …
