Yale physicists create an error-correcting cat for quantum computers

Yale physicists have developed an error-correcting cat -- a new device that combines the Schrödinger's cat concept of superposition (a physical system existing in...

Scientists find the remnant of an ancient globular cluster

Scientists discovered a stellar stream composed of the remnants of an ancient globular cluster that was torn apart by the Milky Way's gravity 2...

Scientists create new device to light up the way for quantum technologies

Researchers at CRANN and Trinity College Dublin have created an innovative new device that will emit single particles of light, or photons, from quantum...

Radiation could slow corrosion of some materials, says study

In certain alloys, exposure to proton irradiation can extend the material’s lifetime, study finds. Radiation nearly always degrades the materials exposed to it, hastening their...

Scientists find safeguards for quantum communications

Army researchers developed a new way to protect and safeguard quantum information, moving quantum networks a step closer to reality. Quantum information science is a...

New quantum breakthrough could offer new direction for communication tech

Quantum communication has the potential to become the ultimate secure communication channel. Not only is it nearly impossible to eavesdrop on quantum communication, but those...

Teleportation helps create live musical performance, says study

Teleportation is most commonly the stuff of science fiction and, for many, would conjure up the immortal phrase "Beam me up Scotty". However, a new...

Scientists detect black hole swallows much smaller mysterious object

In August of 2019, the LIGO-Virgo gravitational-wave network witnessed the merger of a black hole with 23 times the mass of our sun and...

New gold nanoparticle could purify water of difficult pollutants

Researchers have found a promising technology for clearing water of pollutants: a new nanoparticle that converts light to heat. Trace amounts of contaminants such as...

Black hole collision may have exploded with light

When two black holes spiral around each other and ultimately collide, they send out ripples in space and time called gravitational waves. Because black holes...
