Fiber optic sensor measures tiny magnetic fields

Researchers have developed a light-based technique for measuring very weak magnetic fields, such as those produced when neurons fire in the brain. The inexpensive and compact sensors could offer an alternative to the magnetic ...

Magnetic bacteria and their unique superpower attract researchers

As a graduate student in the 1970s, microbiologist Richard Blakemore probably wasn't expecting to discover a new bacterial species with a never-before-seen ability. While studying bacteria that live in muddy swamps, he observed ...

Quantum systems correct themselves

Quantum devices allow us to accomplish computing and sensing tasks that go beyond the capabilities of their classical counterparts. However, protecting quantum information from being corrupted by errors is difficult.
