New quantum memory stores information for hours

Storing information in a quantum memory system is a difficult challenge, as the data is usually quickly lost. At TU Wien, ultra-long storage times have now been achieved using tiny diamonds.

Diamonds' flaws hold promise for new technologies

Despite their charm and allure, diamonds are rarely perfect. They have tiny defects that, to assistant professor Nathalie de Leon, make them ever so appealing. These atom-sized mistakes have enormous potential in technologies ...

'Building block' of quanutm networks created

(—A proof-of-concept device that could pave the way for on-chip optical quantum networks has been created by a group of researchers from the US.

'Critical baby step' taken for spying life on a molecular scale

( -- The ability to image single biological molecules in a living cell is something that has long eluded researchers; however, a novel technique, using the structure of diamond, may well be able to do this and ...
