Physicists make leaps in reading out qubits with laser light

Qubits are a basic building block for quantum computers, but they're also notoriously fragile—tricky to observe without erasing their information in the process. Now, new research from the University of Colorado Boulder ...

NASA develops technology to dissect the lower atmosphere

The part of the atmosphere closest to the planet is the hardest to measure from space due to the volume of gases above it. Studying Earth's planetary boundary layer, or PBL, will enable scientists to better understand the ...

Physicists mix classical light with half a photon on a qubit

A Russian-U.K. research team has proposed a theoretical description for the new effect of quantum wave mixing involving classical and nonclassical states of microwave radiation. This effect, which previously lacked a rigorous ...
