Researchers Create Entangled Photons 100 Times More Efficiently Than Previously Possible by Stevens Institute of Technology

Super-fast quantum computers and communication devices could revolutionize countless aspects of our lives—but first, researchers need a fast, efficient source of the entangled pairs of photons such systems use to transmit and manipulate information. Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have done just that, not only creating a chip-based photon source 100 times more efficient […]

The First Room-Temperature Superconductor Has Finally Been Found by Emily Conover

The compound conducts electricity without resistance up to 15° C, but only under high pressure. Dias and colleagues formed the superconductor by squeezing carbon, hydrogen and sulfur between the tips of two diamonds and hitting the material with laser light to induce chemical reactions. At a pressure about 2.6 million times that of Earth’s atmosphere, […]
