A new home-grown instrument based on bundles of optical fibres is giving Australian astronomers the first 'Google street view' of the cosmos—incredibly detailed views of huge numbers of galaxies.
Remote quantum applications, teleportation enabled by calling long distance between superconducting qubits
(Phys.org) —Researchers have developed a way for superconducting quantum chips to talk to each other over large distances through an optical fibre, allowing quantum entanglement or teleportation - both key steps towards ...
(Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB)) Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen/Germany and of the QUEST Institute, based at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, have tested ...
Lighter-weight, fuel-efficient cars may be closer to reality thanks to Geelong researchers who are giving carbon fibre the gripping power it needs to be able to stand up to impacts from motorists.
The fangs of the large wandering spider (Cupiennius salei) are incisively shaped, right to the tip. The spider uses its curved fang to grasp its prey, punctures its chitinous armour and injects venom into the victim. As a ...
Battery weight has long vexed engineers designing electric cars for the mass market. Bigger batteries are needed to power a car for longer distances, but their weight in turn requires the car to expend more energy.
A unique cutting-edge carbon fibre research facility Carbon Nexus officially opened at Deakin University in Geelong last week. It houses laboratories, a pilot scale carbon fibre line and a smaller single-tow research line.
A new software-defined dark fibre optical network will enable researchers to create and develop vital communication technologies for the future of the internet.
We are all aware of the health benefits of "dietary fibre". But what is dietary fiber and how do we metabolise it?
(Phys.org) —An international research team, led by researchers from the University of Sydney, have observed an on-chip soliton compression in a silicon photonic crystal for the first time.
