futureMicrosoft’s Hunt for a Topological Quantum Computer Qubit

Microsoft is developing Majorana-based topological quantum computer qubits which will be higher-quality and lower error rate qubits. A high-quality hybrid system made of InSb nanowires with epitaxial-grown Al shells has revealed ballistic superconductivity and quantized zero-bias conductance peak. This holds …

futureGoogle’s Quantum Supremacy is a Foundation Where Quantum Systems Were Engineered to Solve Big Problems

The Google team forced themselves to work on the hardest part of quantum computers which is quantum systems engineering. Quantum systems engineering is making everything work together at the same time. The system maintained quantum operation for 200 seconds and …

chinaChina Starts Building Double Speed Maglev Test Track

China is building new faster prototype maglev train line. China existing high-speed trains are almost all faster versions of conventional steel wheels on steel rail trains. China only has one 19-mile long high-speed maglev train line from Pudong to the …

futureRoadmap for Lab Experiments for Warp Drive

Joseph Agnew, undergrad and research assistant from the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s Propulsion Research Center (PRC), presented the results of his study “An Examination of Warp Theory and Technology to Determine the State of the Art and Feasibility“. This …

artificial intelligenceAI and Supercomputing For Better Superconductors

Argonne researchers use genetic algorithms to find better superconductors. Certain patterns of defects composed of metallic inclusions were found to maximize the critical current. researchers developed a computer algorithm that treated each defect like a biological gene. Different combinations of …

futureCERN Proposes 100 Trillion Electron Volt Supercollider for 2040

The Future Circular Collider (FCC) collaboration submitted its Conceptual Design Report (CDR) for publication, a four-volume document that presents the different options for a large circular collider of the future. It showcases the great physics opportunities offered by machines of …

physicsBlack Holes, Quantum Systems, Superconductors and Planck’s Constant are Related

Researchers from the CNRS and Université de Sherbrooke, have discovered a universal law for the electronic properties of high-temperature superconductors. They exposed superconductors to an intense magnetic field to weaken superconductivity and reveal underlying properties. They measured the variations of …

carbon nanotubesSuperstrong materials for electric spaceplanes instead of space elevators

China has carbon nanotube bundles in the lab that are 20 times stronger than kevlar. They are trying to scale them up for mass production. If they succeed in mass producing tons of this material then what has been impossible …
