  • Between two universes September 20, 2022
    Mohammad Javad Khojasteh, a postdoc at MIT LIDS, uses both classical and quantum physics to improve state-of-the-art capabilities in communication, sensing, and computation.
  • Silicon nanopillars for quantum communication September 20, 2022
    Across the world, specialists are working on implementing quantum information technologies. One important path involves light: Looking ahead, single light packages, also known as light quanta or photons, could transmit data that is both coded and effectively tap proof. To this end, new photon sources are required that emit single light quanta in a controlled […]
  • Zyvex Announces an Extremely Precise Lithography System for Use in Fabricating Quantum Processor Chips September 20, 2022
    Zyvex new product, called ZyvexLitho1TM uses scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to achieve line widths of 0.768 nanometers which is much better than the DUV or EUV systems used in the most advanced semiconductor fabs. It uses a technology called Hydrogen Depassivation Lithography which is a form of Electron Beam Lithography (EBL) that achieves atomic resolution. Uses […]

  • I had a dream September 14, 2022
    As I slept fitfully, still recovering from COVID, I had one of the more interesting dreams of my life: I was desperately trying to finish some PowerPoint slides in time to give a talk. Uncharacteristically for me, one of the slides displayed actual code. This was a dream, so nothing was as clear as I’d […]
  • Scientists see spins in a 2D magnet September 7, 2022

  • What I’ve learned from having COVID September 4, 2022
    The same thing Salman Rushdie learned: either you spend your entire life in hiding, or eventually it’ll come for you. Years might pass. You might emerge from hiding once, ten times, a hundred times, be fine, and conclude (emotionally if not intellectually) that the danger must now be over, that if it were going to […]
  • Quantum materials: Entanglement of many atoms discovered September 2, 2022
    Be it magnets or superconductors: materials are known for their various properties. However, these properties may change spontaneously under extreme conditions. Researchers have discovered an entirely new type of such phase transitions. They display the phenomenon of quantum entanglement involving many atoms, which previously has only been observed in the realm of few atoms.
