Global quantum communications—no longer the stuff of fiction?
Neither quantum computers nor quantum cryptography will become prevalent technologies without memory systems able to manipulate quantum information easily and effectively. The Faculty of Physics at the University ...
Discovery sheds light on nuclear reactor fuel behavior during a severe event
A new discovery about the atomic structure of uranium dioxide will help scientists select the best computational model to simulate severe nuclear reactor accidents.
Exploring extraordinary optical transmission in a plasmonic cavity
Researchers at New Mexico State University in the US have investigated extraordinary optical transmission in a plasmonic cavity. The device they have developed features a hybrid surface plasmon polariton/Fabry-Pérot ...
Scientists create never-before-seen form of matter
Harvard and MIT scientists are challenging the conventional wisdom about light, and they didn't need to go to a galaxy far, far away to do it.
