Complete design of a silicon quantum computer chip unveiled

Research teams all over the world are exploring different ways to design a working computing chip that can integrate quantum interactions. Now, UNSW engineers believe they have cracked the problem, reimagining the silicon ...

Quantum computers: 10-fold boost in stability achieved

Australian engineers have created a new quantum bit which remains in a stable superposition for 10 times longer than previously achieved, dramatically expanding the time during which calculations could be performed in a future ...

Ancient DNA shows perfect storm felled Ice Age giants

Giant Ice Age species including elephant-sized sloths and powerful sabre-toothed cats that once roamed the windswept plains of Patagonia, southern South America, were finally felled by a perfect storm of a rapidly warming ...

Quantum computer coding in silicon now possible

A team of Australian engineers has proven—with the highest score ever obtained—that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes ...

Study shows removal of trees makes wetlands wetter

(Phys.org) —A small team of Australian researchers has found that cutting down trees in a wetland area, tends to make the area even wetter. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes a study they ...

Kangaroo Island koalas may save the koala species

South Australia's Kangaroo Island koalas have been found to be free from the disease that is threatening koala populations around Australia, particularly in Australia's north-east where populations are declining dramatically.
