Important Effect Observed in Development of Quantum Storage
Rare-earth materials are prime candidates for storing quantum information, because the undesirable interaction with their environment is extremely weak. Consequently however, this lack of interaction implies a very small response to light, making it hard to read and write data. More info

Milan Allan Group Builds STM: Timelapse
Milan Allan’s research group has created a timelapse of their efforts to build their scanning tunneling microscope (STM), called Tamagotchi. An STM allows researchers to see the electronic structure of materials with atomic precision. Allan’s group wants to understand the More info
