What if we could teach photons to behave like electrons?

To develop futuristic technologies like quantum computers, scientists will need to find ways to control photons, the basic particles of light, just as precisely as they can already control electrons, the basic particles in ...

Experts develop nanolasers on silicon

Researchers at Cardiff University have shown tiny light-emitting nanolasers less than a tenth of the size of the width of a human hair can be integrated into silicon chip design.

Spotting hacks automatically, before the hackers do

In early 2018, cybersecurity researchers discovered two security flaws they said were present in almost every high-end processor made and used by major companies. Known ominously as Spectre and Meltdown, these flaws were ...

Tests show integrated quantum chip operations possible

Quantum computers that are capable of solving complex problems, like drug design or machine learning, will require millions of quantum bits—or qubits—connected in an integrated way and designed to correct errors that ...

Massive chip design savings to be realized

IT researchers working at the University of Twente have developed a programming language making the massive costs associated with designing hardware more manageable. Chip manufacturers have been using the same chip design ...

The first broadband amplifier using vertical inductors

Researchers at the Dresden University of Technology in Germany have proposed the first broadband amplifier using vertical inductors. All circuits are built from passive components, and improved chip design requires passive-component ...
