Physicists show self-correcting quantum computers are theoretically possible
How the physics of champagne bubbles may help address the world's future energy needs
Uncork a bottle of champagne, and as the pressure of the liquid is abruptly removed, bubbles immediately form and then rapidly begin the process of "coarsening," in which larger bubbles grow at the expense ...
A piece of the quantum puzzle: High level of controllability needed to explore ideas in quantum simulations
While the Martinis Lab at UC Santa Barbara has been focusing on quantum computation, former postdoctoral fellow Pedram Roushan and several colleagues have been exploring qubits (quantum bits) for quantum ...

New study finds 'geologic clock' that helps determine Moon's age
An international team of planetary scientists determined that the Moon formed nearly 100 million years after the start of the solar system (4.470 billion years ago), according to a paper to be published April ...
Researchers find temperature feedback magnifying climate warming in Arctic
Simulation sets atoms shivering
(Phys.org) —In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (JK Rowling, 1997), Harry, Ron, and Hermione encounter a massive stone chessboard, one of many obstacles in their path. To advance, they must play, ...
