Trio create model to explain massive heat in the Sun's corona
40-year-old algorithm proven the best possible
Comparing the genomes of different species—or different members of the same species—is the basis of a great deal of modern biology. DNA sequences that are conserved across species are likely to be functionally ...
Researchers find strong constraint on delivery of optical signals to computers
Optics, a form of data transmission that utilizes beams of light, has the promise to outperform the beams of electrons that drive your computer or smartphone. Engineers have long sought a way to miniaturize ...
Engineers develop a computer that operates on water droplets
Computers and water typically don't mix, but in Manu Prakash's lab, the two are one and the same. Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, and his students have built a synchronous computer ...
Researchers develop technique for integrating 'III-V' materials onto silicon wafers
A team of IBM researchers in Zurich, Switzerland with support from colleagues in Yorktown Heights, New York has developed a relatively simple, robust and versatile process for growing crystals made from compound ...
Entangled photons unlock new super-sensitive characterisation of quantum technology
A new protocol for estimating unknown optical processes, called unitary operations, with precision enhanced by the unique properties of quantum mechanics has been demonstrated by scientists and engineers ...
